Robert Foley 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California
The Napa Valley Cabernet combines the character of the four AVAs: Weathered high-elevation vineyards on Howell Mountain, Atlas Peak, and Mt Veeder provide intensity of color, higher acidity levels, and spiciness from the surrounding forests.
The lower elevation blocks of southern and northern Calistoga with rocky soils and more extreme heat summation provide then lush mid-palate and fine tannin – the perfect Yin and Yang with which to blend this 100% Cabernet. Ripe black cherry and rhubarb pie aromas, a thick almost sweet mouth-coating middle give way to the elegant finish. Oak character is well-integrated with the fruit.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
