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 2006 Petite Sirah Muscleman's blue/black color is accompanied by a sweet nose of blueberries, blackberries, and background oak. Thick, juicy, rich, and highly extracted, with no bitterness, this enormously endowed Petite Sirah requires 5-6 years ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

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.

Black-ruby to the rim. Very dark, vibrant aromas of mountain blackberry, violet and licorice. Lush, thick and outsized; saturates the entire palate with an essence of black fruits. This boasts huge volume but does not come across as overly sweet. A s... Stephen Tanzer. A Petite Sirah wine from California in USA. 2004 Robert Foley Vineyards Petite Sirah 750ml

Lots of exotic spice, wood and hazelnut aromas lead to a rich, supple, polished core of harmonious wild berry and blackberry fruit. It's so refined and elegant you'll be surprised that this is a Petite Sirah, though the tannins on the finish will rem... Wine Spectator.
