My second Foley Charbono (other was the '04).

Rich color, similar to a well extracted zinfandel. Good, slightly tangy nose of tart cherry, mixed with blackberry. Slightly austere and acidic/lean attack with black pepper, oak, cedar, cranberry, blackberry, something dusty and brambly I can't quite put my finger on. I decanted this for 36 hours, and tasted throughout, and while the tannins were never over-the-top, they did recede a bit with time. I don't have enough experience with the grape to know about its varietal character, but I'm not really a huge fan of either of the ones I've tried. 85pts, drink or hold.
