The classic character of slowly but thoroughly ripened Cabernet-family varieties show beautifully. 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. (600 cases produced)

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.

Sleek and polished, with a touch of hazelnut- and espresso-scented oak and forest floor nuances woven amid the dusty black berry, gravel and savory notes. Ends with fine-grained tannins and good length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2027. 600 cases made.
