Claret 2012 - 3L
Aromas of ripe black cherry and subtle hints of violets introduce this seductive left-bank Cabernet blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot. The mid-palate is big and round with a soft cherry-vanilla elegance. Natural acidity creates perfect balance and an extremely long finish.

2012 Robert Foley Vineyards Claret
Foley’s top wine is the inky/purple-colored 2012 Claret, a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. It ratchets up the level of concentration, offering a big, sweet bouquet of white chocolate, smoky oak, espresso beans, licorice, forest floor, blackberries and cassis. Viscous and thick with oodles of fruit and glycerin, and a long, dense, 50-second finish, this is a killer expression of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2012 should drink well for 12-15 years.
