Claret 2013 - 3L
Our flagship wine is full and rich and utterly even across the palate. The Claret, Napa-Style, is made of the best we have – a classic Left Bank Bordeaux-style blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. Ripe black cherry and toasty French oak aromas open with hints of menthol and lavender. The mid palate is elegantly even and beautifully balanced, allowing the flavors to coat the mouth and linger long in the finish. The Claret can be considered its own food group!
Bottle is hand engraved and hand painted.

2013 Robert Foley Vineyards Claret
The prodigious 2013 Claret (a 690-case blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot) comes from various AVAs, including Mt. Veeder, Howell Mountain, and of course, Calistoga. Also aged 18 months in French oak, this wine displays compelling crème de cassis notes intermixed with cedar wood, baking spices, blackberry, and hints of mulberries and flowers. The wine has great intensity, a full-bodied, super-duper mouthfeel, and a very long finish of close to 45+ seconds. This is a beauty, with sweet tannin as well as profound depth. Drink it over the next 20+ years.
