Bob Foley holds all his wines back until they’re “ready”. You know this from our stories about the Butcher and Shelter wines, which regularly take several years before Bob is ready for the world to have at them. Both he and his wife serve as the guinea pigs, drinking the wines regularly over time, until they’re deemed good to go. With today’s beauty, they’re finally ready to relinquish some of their private stash.
I had a chance to try Bob’s Estate Blanc this past week and found it to be absolutely flawless. It reminds me of a Cotes du Rhône. Then I was given the price of the wine and was blown away.
This is an amazingly crisp white, especially considering Bob held back a year or two. It’s no surprise. Even without any oak treatment, this is an aromatic treat. Pair with any of the usual suspects: spring salad, poultry or anything out of the ocean.
I think all of Foley’s wines are a bargain especially considering the extra aging (which ain’t cheap) and the pedigree– but this one just might take the cake. It’s not everyday you get to raid the cellar of a true passion project. $28/bottle at the winery and everywhere else online. 43% OFF on bottle one for the next 72 hours. Nearly half off and shipping included on all case orders.
