Vineyard Notes

The Foley Johnson 2016 Handmade Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our Peral Estate Vineyard. It is comprised of thicker and heavier adobe soils with small amounts of gravel which are perfect for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. The ideal growing conditions in the vineyard allow our Bordeaux varietals to reach full maturity on the vine without taking on the green, leafy taste of under-ripe fruit. The grapes were all harvested between September 7 - October 20, 2016, under clear skies. The wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation and is unfiltered. After 19 months in 30% new French, American and Hungarian oak the wine was bottled on July 16, 2018.
