2017 Foley Sonoma Oz Zinfandel, Alexander Valley
The 2017 OZ has a distinct cherry pie aromatic profile, which follows onto the palate. Although opulent with dark, ripe fruit spilling into every edge of it, tart cherry notes help to keep the wine balanced and provides for a wine that will age well for the next seven years.

The Osborn Vineyard, or “Oz” for short, is our northwest neighbor. While very similar to the soil of our Estate Old Vine block, Oz differs in that it produces fruit that creates a more earthy profile and boldness on the palate.
