The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate offers
greater richness and breadth of flavor than its two
siblings. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple
and the wine reveals notes of creme de cassis,
vanillin and licorice. It builds incrementally on the
palate. Elegant, with good substance, medium to
full body, sweet tannins and an accessible style, it
should evolve for up to a decade.
- Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, October 2013

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Foley Johnson Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is grown at two different vineyards on the estate. The Peral Vineyard which lies southeast of the Main Vineyard has thicker and heavier adobe soils with small amounts of gravel. The Main vineyard is on loamy soils of gravel, clay, and sand which helps provide ample drainage and lessen the vigor of foliage growth. These ideal growing conditions allow our Bordeaux varietals to reach full maturity on the vine without taking on the green leafy taste of under-ripened fruit. The grapes were harvested October 13 through October 27, 2010 under clear night skies. The wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation and was racked four times throughout the barreling process. After 22 months of aging in new and used French Oak barrels (36% new) the wine was bottled September 12th and 13th 2012.
Winemaker Notes
Our 2010 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of blackberry and black currant with a hint of licorice and spice. The plate is full of rich black fruits and finishes with just a hint of oak. The tannins are smooth and supple and the wine has a fine, lingering finish. This unfined Cabernet will continue to open up and can be enjoyed through 2024.
