1999 Robert Foley Claret - 93 pts!
There are 400 cases of this blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Pride Mountain Vineyard's winemaker Robert Foley. Sadly most of the 1998 which I reviewed in issue #141 was destroyed in a warehouse fire. The only bottles that survived were those from his personal cellar and a handful of bottles provided as samples to distributors. The opaque purple-colored 1999 is a seamless classic offering a sweet perfume of coffee mocha graphite black cherries licorice and cassis. The wine reveals sweet tannin beautiful purity and a gorgeous layered texture. It should drink well for 15+ years. RP
