94 Points - Tasting Panel Magazine
The 2018 Foley Sonoma Winemaker Series Courtney's Cuvée is a selection of Courtney Foley’s favorite barrels of three varietal lots is an excellent expression of our estate vineyards. Lush with plum, powerful dark chocolate and silky tannins to balance the ripe fruits.
Lush black cherry, blackberry, plum and cocoa powder dominate the nose on our 2017 Courtney’s Cuvee while the palate remains rich and round with plenty of dark fruit. Silky tannins and elegant acidity balance out the robust qualities of this wine and create a long lingering finish. Drinking well now, but could be set aside for up to 5-7 years to further round out the young tannins.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Petit Verdot, 11% Tannat, 2% Cabernet Franc
The labels on our Winemaker Series illustrate and honor each vineyard. Fruit for our 2017 Courtney’s Cuvée came from our estate vineyards in the Alexander Valley. These vineyards lie at the valley floor, planted on predominantly clay soils.
