Foley Johnson Estate Rutherford Meritage Red 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
Wine AdvocateTheir 2014 Proprietary Red Meritage is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, and the rest Malbec and Cabernet Franc. It is another striking value among the stratospherically priced wines of Napa. More floral than its counterpart, with more uplifted aromatics, but similar weight and richness, this full-bodied, pure, ripe, delicious and complex wine has attractive aromatics, medium to full body and velvety tannins. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. Drink Date: 2016-2028.
Wine SpectatorBordeaux-like, offering an expansive mix of currant, cedar, cigar box, riverbed and tobacco leaf flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2020 through 2032. 1,429 cases made.
