Robert Foley Petite Sirah Spring Mountain District 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Combining the characters of 2006’s Muscleman and Pepperland, this one is just as muscular, ripe and complex as you might expect. This is serious RED WINE!

Robert Foley began his wine making career in the Napa Valley in 1977, working at a number of highly regarded Napa Valley wineries including the famous Pride Mountain Vineyards, where he spent 15 years as founding wine maker. During this period he also created the highly acclaimed Switchback Ridge, Hourglass, Paloma, School House, and Engel Family wines. In 1998 Robert Foley Vineyards bottled their first Claret, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and over the last 10 years have expanded and diversified their own production. Bob’s reputation for producing very expressive wines which finish gracefully continues to develop at the new winery facility on the summit of Napa County’s Howell Mountain. Bob and wife and Business Manager Kelly Kehoe house over 1000 barrels in an extensive cave system which they completed in summer of 2008 for the production of Robert Foley wines. When Bob's not making wine he spends quality time with his wife Kelly, his children, and his new grand daughter. You can also find Bob at jammin' at venues across the county with his rock and roll group, The Robert Foley Band Read less

Thick tannins create a mouthfilling experience of dark, concentrated and brambly flavors of wild berry and licorice. Theres impressive intensity, with spicy cigar box, mineral, clay, pepper and violet grace notes on the long finish. Drink now throug... Wine Spectator.

The black/purple 2007 Petite Sirah may well be around in 50andndash;60 years, when most of us will be pushing up daisies. In fact, it probably needs to be forgotten for 8andndash;10 years. A massive, pedal-to-the-metal Petite Sirah that looks like pen ink, the wine displays notes of creosote, pepper, spice box, blackberry, and blueberry, with hints of incense and floral undertones. It is dense and almost looks like syrup being poured into a glass. It is obviously not for everybody, as it is certainly a controversial New World wine, but these wines will become more and more civilized as they age, and I wouldnandrsquo;t be surprised if this one is spoken of with reverence 40andndash;50 years from now.

Saturated black-ruby. Crushed blackberry and blueberry aromas are perked up by spices, pepper, violet and flinty minerality, with a smoky element adding complexity. A dense, powerful cocktail of berries with outstanding sweetness and thrust. For such a concentrated wine, this shows uncanny suavity of texture and lift. Finishes with broad, fine-grained tannins and palate-staining length. An exceptional petite sirah: I can see this going on in bottle for 20 years.
