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 Napa Valley Cabernet combines the character of the four AVAs where we farm Cabernet Sauvignon. Weathered high-elevation vineyards on Howell Mountain, Atlas Peak, and Mt Veeder provide intensity of color, higher acidity levels and spiciness from the surrounding forests.
The lower elevation blocks of southern and northern Calistoga with rocky soils and more extreme heat summation provide then lush mid-palate and fine tannin - the perfect Yin and Yang with which to blend this 100% Cabernet. Ripe black cherry and rhubarb pie aromas, a thick almost sweet mouth-coating middle give way to the elegant finish. Oak character is well-integrated with the fruit."-Robert Foley Vineyards
