Wine Review: This opaque and dark purple 100% Cabernet from Robert Foley is Excellent. It opens with an inviting black cherry bouquet with a hint of blueberry, black pepper, and oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very well balanced, and ultra smooth. The flavor profile is a delicious black currant and blueberry blend with a pleasant dose of black pepper and oak nicely mixed in. The finish is quite dry and shows very nice length. This wine would pair very nicely with a filet mignon. Enjoy – Ken

Buy This Wine from Robert Foley Vineyards

Winemaker Notes: The first wine bottled under the Robert Foley Vineyards label was our 1998 Claret which was a non-varietal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, neither variety constituting more than 75% of the blend. As the vintages have rolled by, our proportion of Cabernet has increased and our Claret has evolved into a Cabernet Sauvignon. This is our flagship wine. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, we've blended mountain fruit from Howell Mountain, Mt Veeder and Atlas Peak with warmer Calistoga Cabernet to produce an extracted wine, even across the palate and aromatically intoxicating.

Organic status: not organic
