Ratings
93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon W. P. Foley II has youthful black currant, blackberry and cigar box scents with underlying bay leaf, menthol, charcoal, pencil lead and earth hints. Full-bodied and delivering layers of densely packed black fruit, dried herbs and earth flavors, it has a solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and ample freshness, finishing long. Give it 2-4 years in bottle and drink it over the next 20." -LPB
Winemaker Notes
Within the Chalk Hill Estate there are a handful of blocks that produce exceptional wines every year. The 2014 vintage gave us an abundance of riches. To create this incredible blend, the best barrels from our top Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Carménère blocks were selected. It is a deep, intense, powerfully built wine that captures the heart and soul of our stunning property. I am proud to give this wine my name. -William P. Foley, Proprietor

Our 1300+ acre property is located at the convergence of a number of diverse climates, soils and terrains in the northeastern hills of Sonoma County. e complexity of the terroir enables our winery to produce an extraordinary range of wines from around 350 acres of vineyards woven amongst the native oak woodlands, meadows and streams. To preserve the long-term viability of the ecosystem, all of our vineyards are maintained using low-input, sustainable viticultural practices.
