Bob Foley is a winemaker who has always had a plan going way back to 1977 when he first started making wines at Pride Mountain. From Pride, he went on to build Parker darlings like Switchback Ridge, Hourglass and Paloma. Not possible without the best of plans. So, with that kind of resume, doors open pretty easily when it comes to finding some of the best Cabernet grapes possible in the Napa Valley.
If you know Bob, he’s a character. There’s virtually no one in all of Napa that is willing to sit on wine for years, only to release it when the master deems it ready. It makes no sense. You have to pay the vineyard crew by the week. Barrels – paid for upon delivery. You get to wait a little bit before you buy the glass. But Bob will wait several years before finally releasing the wine and getting back any return on investment.
His 2017 Foley ‘The Butcher’ is a massive dark-fruited Cabernet Sauvignon with hints of creme de cassis, coca, coffee and a bit of baking spice. Bob is just now getting ready to share with the world. Before he does that though, we come first! Don’t miss our Cab deal of the summer courtesy of our good friend, Bob Foley and his famous Napa Cabs.
