Varietal Content: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc
The 2004 Foppiano Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was made entirely from
fully mature, 17-year old vines grown on the family's Russian River Valley Estate. The
wine is full-bodied and deeply colored. In the aroma, hints of mint and anise give way to
pronounced blackberry and currant. A cedar and vanilla bouquet are matched with
comparable character in the flavors from one year in oak.
Best served with red meat dishes, hearty pastas, full-flavored cheeses, roasted pork, or roasted wild boar.
