Ratings
93 Points - Robert Parker. "A wine of greater intensity, more structure and denser fruit is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford. This beautiful wine shows loamy soil undertones intermixed with tobacco leaf, blackberry and cassis, incense and camphor. This is full-bodied, stunningly pure, rich and multidimensional. Drink it over the next 12-15 years."
Winemaker Notes
Deep crimson in color, this 2013 Handmade Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon entices the senses. Rich and textured, its complexity shines showcasing the elegance of Rutherford fruit. Inviting aromatics of dark cherry, anise and black pepper follow through to the palate with the addition of bright cranberry and spice notes. This is a vibrant and elegant wine that finishes long with a focused core of dark berry fruit.

Production Notes
The Foley Johnson 2013 Handmade Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our Peral Estate Vineyard. It’s comprised of thicker and heavier adobe soils with small amounts of gravel which are perfect for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. The ideal growing conditions in the vineyard allow our Bordeaux varietals to reach full maturity on the vine without taking on the green, leafy taste of under-ripe fruit. The grapes were all harvested between September 23 - October 25, 2013, under clear skies. The wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation and is unfiltered. After 19 months in 14% new French oak (with a majority being 1-year-old French oak), the wine was bottled on July 17th 2014.
