Robert Foley Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Claret 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

96 Points - Wine Advocate, 91 Points - Wine Spectator<br/><br/>Potentially the "Cabernet Sauvignon of the vintage," Foleys 2000 Claret (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) is an amazing effort for this irregular vintage. It possesses a saturated black/purple color, great elegance and richness as well as amazing precision and extraordinary purity. Aromas of smoke, licorice, incense, black currant liqueur, and spice box are followed by a full-bodied, satiny smooth wine with a 45+ second finish. This incredible 2000 is a tribute to Bob Foleys talents. <br/>A sleek, rich, elegant style, with a complex array of anise, black cherry, flashy mocha-scented oak, currant and coffee, finishing with a long, complex aftertaste.<br/><br/>

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
