Vineyard Notes: The Foley Napa Valley Cabernet combines the character of the three AVAs where the fruit is sourced. Weathered high-elevation vineyards on Howell Mountain and Mt Veeder provide intensity of color, higher acidity levels, and spiciness from the surrounding forests. The lower elevation blocks of southern and northern Calistoga with rocky soils and more extreme heat summation provide then lush mid-palate and fine tannin.

Tasting Notes: Huge yet soft on the palate, a flood of goodness is framed in the gentle grip of soft tannin. This is an integrated, balanced, and structured 100% Cabernet Sauvignon now and for the ages.

    Lastly, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 30% new oak) offers a touch more elegance as well as terrific notes of blue fruits, plums, dark chocolate, and violets. Full-bodied, ripe, and polished on the palate, it stays balanced, has solid underlying structure, and a great finish. If you’re looking for a rock star Cabernet under $100, this is for you. It will evolve for 15+ years or more.
