This wine is an exceptional representation of our Alexander Valley fruit, resulting in a full-bodied Cabernet with well structured tannins.

The Foley Sonoma Winemaker Series includes wines hand crafted and selected by the winemaker. Each wine in the series embodies a distinct representation of terroir which is illustrated by the hand painted watercolors depicted on our label. Our Alexander Valley estate vineyard is pictured here in red hues, demonstrating the warm weather and bold character to the area that is maintained in our Winemaker Series Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winemaker Notes

On the nose, aromas of blackberry, black cherry, cassis, and toffee lead to a powerful merriment of rich flavors on the palate. Dark blackberry with plenty of cocoa and hints of floral make this wine exciting from start to finish. Thanks to the youthful tannins on the elongated finish, this wine will continue to age gracefully for 7-10 years.

Production Notes

Fruit for our 2017 Winemaker Series Cabernet Sauvignon came from our estate vineyards in the Alexander Valley. Our Clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon is planted on predominately clay soils, with east west orientation, and enjoys wonderful, unencumbered sunshine throughout the growing season. A small amount of Petit Verdot, Tannat and Cabernet Franc from our estate were blended in to add more structure and character.
