    Foley's finest wine is modeled after Pride Mountain's Claret. The 2010 Claret (80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 3% Petite Sirah) boasts fabulous aromas of licorice, espresso beans, blueberries, blackberries and subtle smoky oak. With full-bodied texture, terrific purity and layers of juicy fruit and glycerin, this brilliant, full throttle, mouth-coating red can be enjoyed now as well as over the next 15+ years.

    Well made. Fully balanced and deep, with black currants and dark berries. Tannins meld in on the long finish.

Winemaker Robert Foley began his winemaking career in 1977, working at Heitz Winery before becoming founding winemaker at Markham, where he developed the style of Merlot that helped make the variety a mega-trend in the 1980s. Following his success at Markham, Foley is perhaps best known for his tenure with Pride and Paloma. He still keeps a coterie of clients including School House, Switchback Ridge and Hourglass. He founded Robert Foley Vineyards in 1999 and was named Food & Wine Magazine's Winemaker of the Year in 2007.
