Foley Johnson Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Estate 2016
“A truly romantic gesture this Valentine’s Day would be you refilling my glass.” -- someone brilliant
MAKE IT SO. With a 91+ POINT, killer 2016 vintage, classic Rutherford Cabernet, at a body-rocking price of 60% OFF retail!! How did we even pull this off??
It’s V-day, so it would be easy to start throwing around libidinous words about the carnal seductiveness of this concupiscent, intoxicating vinous nectar, but we’ll keep it clean today, shall we? Yes, we are talking about a masculine yet seductive, gorgeous Cabernet from Foley-Johnson (formerly Sawyer, if you remember that excellent producer), in the heart of Rutherford --- man, we NEVER get enough legit Napa Cab --- don’t dilly-dally, we will sell out in a flash!! It’s probably gone already!
Black cherry extract just comes SINGING out of the bottle the moment the cork is pulled, with sweet herbs, rich earth, a bright red fruit note and then a rush of toasted spices. Rich and broad-shouldered, just a perfect, satisfying, classic Rutherford Cabernet --- not to mention the superbly, crazily satisfying price!! HURRY!

About The Producer
For years, Bill Foley and his wife, Carol Johnson Foley, had dreamt of opening a winery bearing their name in Napa Valley. They both enjoyed the grandeur of Napa’s scenery and the rhythm of its lifestyle, and, more importantly, the couple loved the opulence and complexity of Napa’s wines. With the launch of Foley Johnson in 2012, the Foleys have created a world-class winery with premier vineyards and a historic tasting room right in the heart of America’s preeminent winegrowing region.
Located along Highway 29 in the prestigious Rutherford AVA, Foley Johnson exemplifies the understated elegance and casual warmth of the Valley. The winery produces two tiers of wines: Napa Valley and Handmade. The Napa Valley tier focuses on Bordeaux varieties from the nearly 50 acres of estate vineyards around the winery in Rutherford. The Handmade tier features special small-lot bottlings from some of the renowned winemakers in the Foley Family Wines group of wineries including Dave Lattin of Kuleto, Leslie Renaud of Lincourt, Paul Warson of Firestone, Mark Lyon of Sebastiani and Lisa Bishop Forbes of Chalk Hill.
