Winemaker's Notes

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.
