Robert Foley’s Consulting Side Project Delivers Big on Density and Power
While Foley is mostly known now for his own winery now, he originally came to fame as the prominent personality behind Pride Mountain Vineyards’ winemaking team. Over the years, he has consulted and launched many other top mid-range Napa projects: Paloma, School House, and Hourglass to name a few. Switchback Ridge may be his longest running side project though. The vineyards are located in the ridges of eastern Calistoga, alongside Hourglass's Blueline and Duckhorn's Three Palms Vineyards. Since their initial release in 1999, these wines have shown all of the same excellence of Robert Foley’s top bottlings, and in classic Foley style, they’re big enough that you could paint your house with them. Look at these as the valley floor counterpoint to Foley's Howell Mountain wines. The wines are even made at Foley's Howell Mountain winery, and in fact, Foley uses half of Switchback Ridge's fruit for his own delicious and decadent wines. The Merlot’s drink like Cabernet, and the Cabs drink like, well, really big and intense Cabernet. These are a true insider secret for those of you who love high octane Napa, and we've found they're a great way to ease Caymus drinkers into more conscientious, small-production Napa wines.
