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

An intense and powerful Cabernet blend, with vibrant, concentrated currant and blackberry flavors that show off exotic spicy fragrances, finishing with a potent aftertaste that gushes with fruit and tannins. A genuinely exciting wine with fascinating flavors and balance. Best from 2005 through 2014.

The virtually perfect 2001 Claret (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) has more of everything. A tour de force in winemaking, it possesses extraordinary concentration, intensity, purity, and ripeness, yet retains an elegant style. With a spectacular perfume of blackberry liqueur, cassis, acacia flowers, graphite, espresso roast, and chocolate as well as a 60-second finish, this long, dense 2001 is still primary, but already fun to drink. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2020.

...Extroverted aromas of cassis, blackberry, minerals and dark chocolate show a strong element of torrefaction. Then lush, smooth and extremely deep, with terrific vinosity giving the wine the texture of a great Medoc wine. With its complicating note... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2001 Robert Foley Vineyards Claret 750ml
