Wine Review: This Robert Foley Cabernet was clearly the winner of our first Cab blind tasting this fall. It is opaque and very dark ruby colored. It opens with a very inviting black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, smooth and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a very tasty blueberry and black currant blend with notes of oak, minerality, and a hint of black cherry. The finish is dry and its substantial tannins linger for quite some time. The panel suggested pairing this terrific Cab with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Cabernet Sauvignon at its finest from a great expressive vintage, this 100% varietal combines the firm character of mountain-grown fruit with the more lush and supple fruit grown in warmer conditions at lower elevations. Well-defined aromas and flavors of ripe cherry, Logan berry and vanilla flood the palate. Full bodied but carefully balanced, each taste lingers on and on with seamless texture in a very long finish.
