Beautiful cassis, graphite, dark chocolate, and floral hints emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is medium to full-bodied and has great tannins as well as a balanced, classical style. A terrific 2017 that shines on all accounts, it should keep for 10-15 years.

Tasting Notes

100% varietal in composition, this is a blend of fruit from ridge-top mountain vineyards and the stony soil of Calistoga, where warmer temperatures increase perceived viscosity on the palate. Fully ripe black cherry and black currant aromas are nuanced with suggestions of cedar and camphor. The palate is full and even with a rich middle that is perfectly balanced by natural grape acidity and silky fine tannin.

Winemaker Notes

Harvest of 2017 was unusually early for us, so the wildfires that ravaged Napa and Sonoma counties that year, happened while our wines were already in tank or barrel. We were thankfully spared from the flames and any smoke damage to our fruit.

The Napa Valley Cabernet combines the characteristics of the AVAs where we farm Cabernet Sauvignon. Weathered high-elevation mountain vineyards provide intensity of color, higher acidity levels, and spiciness from the surrounding forests.

The lower-elevation blocks of Calistoga, with rocky soils and more extreme heat summation, provide a lush mid-palate and fine tannin – the perfect Yin and Yang with which to blend this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winery Notes

Robert Foley Vineyards in Napa Valley is a small family owned and operated winery headed by winemaker, Bob Foley.
