Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Foley’s top wine is the inky/purple-colored 2012 Claret, a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. It ratchets up the level of concentration, offering a big, sweet bouquet of white chocolate, smoky oak, espresso beans, licorice, forest floor, blackberries and cassis. Viscous and thick with oodles of fruit and glycerin, and a long, dense, 50-second finish, this is a killer expression of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2012 should drink well for 12-15 years. Robert Foley, who became prominent as the winemaker for so many great vintages at Pride Mountain Vineyard, has been on his own for a number of years. His current offerings include three outstanding efforts from the super 2012 vintage. "
