2003 Robert Foley Napa Valley Claret

SKU #1019783 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The top wine here is the classic 2003 Claret, a gorgeously proportioned, opaque purple-colored effort boasting a big, sweet nose of smoky meats, creme de cassis, coffee, and dark plums. Dense and opulent, with superb concentration, full body, high glycerin, decent acidity, and ripe tannin, this a superb mouthful of wine … (RP)  (12/2005)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

 Nearly 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, this firm young wine showcases Napa Cab at its best. It's powerful in cassis and mocha flavors, with complex spice notes. The considerable new oak fits in fine given the wine’s size. Extraordinarily smooth and lush, it's beautiful now, but has the structure to age … What a beauty.  (9/2006)

95 points Wine Spectator

 Remarkably rich, supple and harmonious, with a generous array of spicy currant, blackberry, exotic spice and hazelnut with hints of mocha and chocolate. (JL)  (11/2005)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep ruby. Sexy aromas of blackcurrant, graphite and licorice. Dense, sweet and super-concentrated, with terrific intensity of briary black raspberry flavors. Powerful, long, brooding wine, finishing with toothcoating tannins. This big boy begs to be served with a piece of meat. Not as lush at this stage as the wonderful 2002, but this may live longer. (ST) 94+  (6/2006)
