I miss Bob Foley.
I used to see him a lot because I was obsessed with Pride Mountain Vineyards, producer of one of the world’s great Merlots. Bob started at Heitz Cellars, but more importantly spent 15 years as the founding winemaker for Markham Vineyards (more great Merlot). Then in 1992, Bob began another 15 years as the founding winemaker for Pride Mountain Vineyards. He also created the highly acclaimed Switchback Ridge, Hourglass, Paloma, and School House wines. Now he has his own eponymous winery on Howell Mountain, and I don't get there (too many other places to be) but there he makes Cabernets as well as various blends, like The Griffin, the Foley Family crest in Irish heraldry and a blend of the best in the red wine cellar: Merlot, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Charbono, Petit Verdot, and sometimes others.
Those of you that know The Griffin, love The Griffin, and the new 2017 vintage has finally arrived. We will also have it on the tasting machine at all 8 stores through the weekend so you can see what all the fuss is about!
Is it the weekend yet? I know what I'm drinking tonight.
