Our flagship wine is full and rich and even across the palate. Black currant and cherry aromas marry with a hint of cedar in this elegant and seamless Cabernet-based blend. The complexity of flavors is carried across the palate in a silky texture, resolving in a lingering and gentle finish.

The inky colored 2014 Claret (80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot) is the flagship of the estate and a winner that delivers everything you'd expect from Robert Foley and a great vintage. A beautiful perfume of ripe black fruits, chocolate, spicy oak, and violets all flow to a full-bodied wine that shows the charming, balanced style of the vintage to a T. Possessing silky tannins, considerable elegance, not a hard edge to be found, and a great finish, it, like most 2014s, is drinking brilliantly today yet has the balance and depth to keep for two decades or more.

The 2014 Claret is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot coming from Calistoga, Howell Mountain and Mt. Veeder. This represents 600 cases of a large-boned, virile, big, juicy blackcurrant and blackberry-scented and flavored Cabernet Sauvignon with some background toast, licorice and forest floor. It has terrific richness, sweet, velvety tannin, and notable opulence and length. Drink it over the next 15 or so years.
