Robert Foley The Griffin
The blended characters of Petite Sirah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Charbono and Syrah deliver rich raspberry flavors balanced with fresh acidity. Having just enough grip in the finish makes this a very approachable, versatile, food-friendly red wine.
The Griffin offers a well-balanced blend of classic claret varieties and favorite Rhone-rooted varieties. The 2017 vintage is 30% Petite Sirah, 26% Merlot, 21% Petit Verdot, 14% Charbono, and 9% Syrah.

Meet The Maker
Robert Foley Vineyards in Napa Valley is a small family owned and operated winery headed by winemaker, Bob Foley. Bob has been a winemaker for over 30 years, and produces wines from many varietals, including the lesser-known favorite, Charbono. Bob is known for making deep, dark wines with remarkable depth and complexity.
The Griffin – on the Foley family crest in Irish heraldry combines the strengths of the lion, king of beasts, with the eagle, king of the skies. A winemaker’s dream is to be artistically free to combine characters into wine that is purely hedonic and non-compliant with varietal regulations, so The Griffin’s blend changes with every vintage.
