Ratings
96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. “Lastly, the blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvi- gnon W.P. Foley II, has exquisite concentration, purity and depth. Flowery, graphite, blackberry, cocoa and espresso notes are followed by a full-bodied, impeccably well-balanced wine. This is built like a skyscraper. Obvi- ously, the proprietor wanted the best stuff to be put under his name, and surely he has achieved something quite special that should prove to be the greatest wine to date in the Chalk Hill AVA. Forget it for 4-5 years and drink it over the following three decades.” - March 2016
