Production Notes
Following harvest, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and then racked to French oak barrels (primarily Boussuet, Francois Feres, and Dargaud Jaegle). After aging for 21 months in barrel (40% new) with regular lees stirring, the wine was bottled.
Vineyard Notes
The vineyards of Foley Sonoma lie at the heart of our estate in the Alexander Valley. Our Cabernet Franc comes from just one acre of our estate valley floor. 2014 was another early and warm vintage in the Alexander Valley. This resulted in prime flavor development of the fruit to display its finest attributes. Overall, the vintage produced grapes of high quality, dense flavors, and balanced acidity. All of the grapes were harvested on October 16, 2014 at optimum ripeness.
