Robert Foley Vineyards-The Griffin-Petite Sirah-Cabernet Sauvignon-Charbono-Merlot-California-2008-14.5% Alcohol-$31.98-A nose of bold dark fruits and spice, dark black purple in color.  A robust full bodied kitchen sink blend with blueberry, black cherry, spice cake and pepper, a big but balanced wine.   Decant for a few hours, many years of life left.                  RP-93           WE-87           CR-92            Good with steak, chicken, pasta.
