Vintage

2015 was a fantastic vintage in the Napa Valley! Moderate, stable temperatures during the growing season allowed for very even ripening. This also made harvest a bit less chaotic as each varietal entered he winery relatively paced out. The variation of soils on the estate allowed all of the Cabernet Sauvignon to mature with exceptional balance. Overall, 2015 was an excellent vintage with very few climatic problems producing high quality fruit.

Vineyard

The Foley Johnson Rutherford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested September 17th through October 25th, 2015 under clear night skies and averaged around 3.13 tons per acre. The wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation and was racked to French, Hungarian and American oak (35% new) for aging. After 20 in barrel, the wine was bottled unfiltered to extract pure fruit notes while bringing forth a deeper color and texture.
