    Floral, yeasty and slightly nutlike quality on the nose. Fairly dry, medium finish. Both citrusy and toasty taste.

    Not a bad wine, but nothing really distinguishing about it. Medium weight, some oak, dark berry fruit, medium finish. The true meaning of mediocre. Not bad, just in the middle. Reasonable cost of about $20 for a Napa Cab, but the same quality in an Argentinian Malbec or a Spanish Grenache would cost about $8.

    The first vintage that this vineyard itself made. Previously they sold all their fruit to other winemakers. Russian River Valley. 14.2 alcohol. Extremely fine and delicious. Light color belies the intensity of the fruit. Very raspberry and spice aroma and taste. An elegant style with a touch of minerality and defines what Pinot should be (at least to me). Expected to get better with time, but near perfect now.

    Intense aroma of plums and dark cherries with a hint of earth. Gentle oak. Ripe and lush, with moderate acidity. Long finish. Superbly balanced. One of Foley's best.

    This wine seems to have mellowed out. Still has crisp acidity, but the apple-y aromas have given way to a more supple and softer mouthfeel of melon and baked pear with a touch of honeyed sweetness.

    Closed at first, this wine can benefit from decanting. Ultimately reveals bright red strawberry and spice components. Medium acidity with light tannins and a gentle medium finish. Should benefit from some aging. Doesn't have the typical Foley Pinot aromatics, but this could develop with cellaring.

    Slightly toasty with aromas of nutmeats, delicate apple-ly flavors with a touch of peach. Pairs well with roast chicken.

    A beautiful Chardonnay, with sufficient acidity to balance its tropical fruit and vanilla aromas and tastes. Not heavily oaked, nor a buttery style. Elegant, with supple aromatic fruit and simply delicious. This will last for quite some time.

    A terrific dry wine with intense floral aromas and a slightly honeyed and lengthy finish. It seemed to be crisp with a creamy mouthfeel.
