Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and marionberry on the nose. Clone 337 lends some of its more brooding qualities on the palate with tobacco and chocolate balancing out the ripe berry notes.

Winemaker Notes
Our 2015 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon brings forth aromas of blackberry, black cherry and marionberry on the nose. The Clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon lends some of its more brooding qualities on the palate with tobacco and chocolate balancing out the ripe berry notes. Thanks to the youthful tannins on the finish, this wine will continue to age gracefully for 7 years.

Production Notes
2015 was another warm year with one of our earliest harvests to date. Yields were lower than the past few growing seasons, but the quality of fruit was exceptional with concentrated flavors and balanced acidity due to consistently warm temperatures throughout the season. The grapes were harvested on September 26, 2015 at optimum ripeness.
Vineyard Notes
The vineyards of Foley Sonoma lie at the heart of our estate in the Alexander Valley. Our Cabernet Sauvignon vines are planted in rich soil that supports the 337 clone. These vines were planted on our estate in the early 2000’s. After harvest, the fruit was fermented in French oak barrels (40% new) and aged for two years and one month. A percentage of Tannat was added to the final blend for enhanced aromas and texture.
