2016 Robert Foley Napa Cabernet
2016 Robert Foley Napa Cabernet “Lastly, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 30% new oak) offers a touch more elegance as well as terrific notes of blue fruits, plums, dark chocolate, and violets. Full-bodied, ripe, and polished on the palate, it stays balanced, has solid underlying structure, and a great finish. If you’re looking for a rock star Cabernet under $100, this is for you. It will evolve for 15+ years or more.” – 96pts Jeb Dunnuck
The Napa Valley Cabernet combines the character of the AVAs where we farm Cabernet Sauvignon. Weathered high-elevation vineyards 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 balance with which to blend this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
A mouthful of cherries jubilee. Huge yet soft on the palate, a flood of goodness is framed in the gentle grip of soft tannin. This is an integrated, balanced, and structured 100% Cabernet Sauvignon now and for the ages. Winemaker
Robert Foley is recognized as one of the greatest California winemakers making wine today. Bob began his wine making career in the Napa Valley in 1977, having just graduated from UC Davis with degrees in both Viticulture and Enology. He spent his first year working for Heitz Cellars, followed by 15 years as the founding winemaker for Markham Vineyards. In 1992, Bob began another 15 years as the founding winemaker for Pride Mountain Vineyards. During this period, he also created the highly acclaimed Switchback Ridge, Hourglass, Paloma, and School House wines. He now focuses mostly on Robert Foley Vineyards wines, but also creates the offerings from Engel Family, Padis Vineyards, and Shelter in the Napa Valley. The man is an absolute master of winemaking, and he knocked this Cabernet out of the park.
