Wine Review: This pitch black colored Claret from Robert Foley opens with a blackberry bouquet with a hint boysenberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is black currant with notes of vanilla oak and black cherry. I also detected hints boysenberry and black pepper in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are dusty and show great length. This wine was pretty complex and went perfectly with my ribeye at Del Frisco’s. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our flagship wine is full and rich and utterly even across the palate: side-to-side and front-to-back. The Bordeaux Blend, Napa-Style! Foley Claret has returned to its roots as a Bordeaux blend of the best we have: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon from our Howell Mountain and Atlas Peak vineyards, 17% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot, which together contribute lushness of the mid palate and exotic aromatics of violet and lavender. This classic Cabernet-based blend will blow your mind in its youth and age gracefully for decades to come.
