Robert Foley Petite Sirah Napa Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Robert Foley Petite Sirah The 2005 Petite Sirah combines ripe berry and crushed pepper aromas, as dark purple as wine gets. And for as dense and extracted as this Petite is, there remains a sturdy acidity to keep the wine vibrant and allow for a broad spectrum of food pairing possibilities. This is a california 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

The enormously-endowed, inky/purple-colored 2005 Petite Sirah reveals notes of incense, spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, and a subtle touch of pepper. This massive red is surprisingly civilized and silky-textured. Although accessible, it should easily last for 15ndash;20 years.

Sturdy and solid, with wild berry, cherry, spice and floral notes that explode into more layers of tobacco, cedar, licorice and black tea flavors midpalate. Dense tannins give this good structure. Drink now through 2013.
