Robert Foley Pinot Blanc Napa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinified with a focus on the fruit characteristics Robert Foley's Pinot Blanc shows wonderful peach and gardenia blossom notes in the bouquet a broad and fresh mouthfeel with a lingering fruity finish. The wine was vinified entirely in stainless steel to preserve the freshness of fruit no oak barrels no malolactic fermentation. Foley's Pinot Blanc is a perfect accompaniment to fish shellfish poultry pasta or simply by itself!

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

This excites the mouth with it's vibrant acids that really help frame the peach and green herbal tones. It's got a nice floral edge on the nose but the appeal here is the wine's focus and precision. Absolutely brilliant with grilled white fish. 89pts

My favorite aspect is the absence of oak. Smooth and a bit buttery.

The Robert Foley winery is a tiny estate located on Howell Mountain. Robert has been making wine in Napa Valley since 1977. His Pinot Blanc brings out the best characteristics of this varietal: The wine sees no oak, and pops with flavors of peach, apricot, and white pepper, with great underlying acidity.
