Mission Briefing

Codename:

Foley Moly!

Looking for a new house red? Press pause on whatever you have going on and snag some of this ultra friendly little fruit bomb. FLAT OUT COMPELLING at this price – 60% off and down to $19 a bottle - it offers the comfort of a 20lb weighted blanket and the reliability of your favorite Golden Retriever.

So, so insanely loveable!

This - stunning value - comes via Foley Johnson and the Bill Foley empire. Originally this luscious red was destined for their private Chairman’s Club. Turns out they made a little too much. So, they gave us a call to move it at this incredible price. After tasting it, we HAPPILY took them up. In addition to major holdings that include some incredible vineyard sites across California, Foley also owns Merus, Sebastiani, Chalk Hill, Ferrari-Carano, and nearly a dozen other super successful wineries. The wealth of options to source incredible fruit is on full display here as he leverages some primo Sonoma vineyards to supply a bold, rich, almost hedonistic blend of Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Malbec.

Talk about a crowd-pleaser! The fruit! So. Much. Fruit. Like diving into a pool of warm cherry pie, it’s soft, round, and blossoming with rich, forward fruit flavors of boysenberry, red currant, black cherries. A little vanilla and spicy oak on the back end give it just enough complexity. Just a flat out enjoyable red you can bust out any day of the week and feel completely, utterly happy with.

If we could pour it into your mouth, you’d buy it. Until click & taste technology comes around though, you’ll just have to trust us.
