Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Foley Johnson Estate Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
The Foley Johnson 2017 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our 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 in early October 2017, before the fires hit. 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 April 10, 2019.
Our 2017 Estate Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon displays inviting aromas of huckleberry, cedar, black pepper and a hint of dried sage. On the palate, bold tannins are balanced with flavors of black currant and dark cherry with savory notes of tobacco and graphite. Well structured and full bodied, our Cabernet Sauvignon is approchable now, but will age beautifully over the next 5-10 years.
