Bill Foley and the Napa Valley are a dramatically marvelous combination. This international wine impresario chose the grandest venue in California to stage his masterpieces, and it's no surprise that his oeuvre continues to amaze after decades of successful runs. But figurative language aside, this Cab is delicious, with lush dark fruit, toasted spice, and vanilla flowers. Rolling tannins lead to a long and complexly aromatic finish. This is a performance not to be missed!

Foley Johnson Wines Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
UNIT SIZE: 750.00 ml
VARIETAL: Cabernet Sauvignon
VINTAGE: 2011 
COUNTRY: United States
GRAPES: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot 
APPELLATION: Rutherford
ALCOHOL: 14.30%
POINTS: 92
The Foley Johnson Cabernet boasts a purple hue with garnet highlights. A luxurious nose of vibrant red and black fruit including dark cherries, red flowers, cassis and toasty vanilla oak. On the palate, silky and packed with layers of fruit including blackberries, plums, vanillin, blueberries, kirsch, a nutmeg spice box and that famous Rutherford dust. Savory and mouthwatering with good texture, with layers of attractive fruit and a pronounced finish. This Cabernet spent 21 months in French oak, one-third of which were new. The winemaking team was particularly proud of this wine in a challenging year as this Vineyard actually had a solid but low yielding harvest and they picked just at the right time. Will drink nicely through 2023 and should get even better with cellaring. Pair this with sirloin steak au poivre, roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, garlic encrusted lamb chops, game meats, coq au vin, or chocolate soufflé.

Vintage Notes
The 2011 growing season was challenging. It started and ended with cool weather. In between, the fruit set late, the yields were much lower than normal and harvest stretched well into November for much of Napa Valley. Despite these setbacks, this turned out to be a good year for Cabernet Sauvignon and other later-ripening varieties, especially where growers were diligent with their farming practices. Having not jumped the gun on preventative measures, we were able to harvest our vineyards with little to no problems, averaging 4.2 tons per acre. Overall the fruit is concentrated and lush, offering some amazing flavors and a unique vintage.
 
Winemaking Notes
The Foley Johnson Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested September 27 through October 28, 2011 under clear night skies. The wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation and was racked four times throughout the barreling process. After 21 months of aging in new and used French Oak barrels (33% new) the wine was bottled July 15, 2013.
 
Tasting Notes
Our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, coming from our estate vineyards located in Rutherford, is predominately Cabernet (78%) with small amounts of Merlot and Petit Verdot that give added flavors and help round out the wine. Filled with aromas and flavors of fresh currant, dried herbs and brambly fruits, this wine has very well integrated tannins that linger from start to finish. This wine will continue to soften over the next few years and can be enjoyed through 2022.
 
Rutherford AVA
Foley Johnson has 50 acres of estate vineyards in the heart of Rutherford, one of the most heralded AVAs in America. In addition to its historical importance, Rutherford is recognized as one of California’s greatest regions for luxury-class wines. The appellation encompasses six square miles and possesses a total of 3,518 acres of vineyards of which 71% are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. The climate is an arid Region II, with warm days and cool nights throughout the summer months. The soils are primarily gravel, sand and loam. The combination of conditions makes this the perfect place for Bordeaux varieties.
 
Sustainable Farming
All of our vineyards are farmed sustainably. Our goal is to preserve the local ecosystem and minimize our impact on the land. In addition to our proprietary farming program, we have helped rejuvenate and protect the Napa River bordering the eastern edge of our estate by removing non-native plants and reestablishing indigenous species. We also have built bird and owl sanctuary houses in our vineyard for insect control. Beyond the beneficial effects sustainable farming has on the environment, it also results in superior grapes that more accurately reflect our terroir.
