Winemaker Notes

The Bordeaux Blend, Napa-Style! Foley Claret has returned to its roots as a Bordeaux blend of the best we have: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon from our Howell Mountain and Atlas Peak vineyards, 17% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot, which together contribute lushness of the mid palate and exotic aromatics of violet and lavender. This classic Cabernet-based blend will blow your mind in its youth and age gracefully for decades to come. (450 cases produced)

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 99
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The virtually perfect 2001 Claret (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) is a tour de force in winemaking. It possesses extraordinary concentration, intensity, purity, and ripeness, yet retains an elegant style. With a spectacular perfume of blackberry liqueur, cassis, acacia flowers, graphite, espresso roast, and chocolate as well as a 60-second finish, this long, dense 2001 is still primary, but already fun to drink. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.
WS 96
Wine Spectator
An intense and powerful Cabernet blend, with intense, vibrant, concentrated currant and blackberry flavors that show off exotic spicy fragrances, finishing with a potent aftertaste that gushes with fruit and tannins. A genuinely exciting wine with fascinating flavors and balance.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
