Robert Foley Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful Napa Valley red of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. 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 its flagship Claret (a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend), and has since expanded and diversified its production to offer more of the big reds Bob is famous for - Petite Sirah, Merlot, Charbono, the limited-release Howell Mountain Cabernet, and Bob's latest creation, The Griffin (a blend of the best in the red cellar).
"The exposure provided by high elevation, slopes, and extreme drainage combined with fundamental vineyard practices produced exceptional grapes for us in the 2014 vintage. Our 2014 "Purple Label" Napa Valley Cabernet is 100% varietal in composition, yet it is a blend of ridge-top Atlas Peak fruit and the stony Calistoga vineyard where the high rocks there create thermals, drawing warming air through the vine rows, working the magic of ripening. Fully ripe cherry pie. Mid-palate gives the impression, sweet fruit and just a hint of mocha. Pleasantly mouth-coating, amply tannin in the finish linger on and on. This vintage is delicious in its youth but will continue to deliver with many years of proper bottle aging."-Robert Foley Vineyards
