2013 FOLEY JOHNSON RUTHERFORD ESTATE MERITAGE

$45.00 $29.99 $29.99

As one of the best value producers in Rutherford, Foley Johnson has one again created a wine that defies what many have thought possible from this hallowed ground, and at this low price.  Arising from the Rutherford AVA, an area long celebrated for its exceptional terroir and dusty tannins.   Andre Tchelistcheff, legendary winemaker at Beaulieu Vineyards was quoted as saying: “Cabernets need a touch of that Rutherford dust.”  The 2013 Meritage is bursting at the seams with pulverized dark berries, dried violets dusted with cocoa, black coffee and subtle smoke.  At $45/btl this wine checks every box… At $29.99/btl, you’ll want to clear some serious room in the wine cellar…

This gorgeous Meritage checks in at 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, enriched with Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec.  After resting for 20 months in French oak barrels, this exemplary blend commands attention with an unforgettable bouquet loaded with concentrated blue and black fruits, freshly cut lavender, mocha and of course that good old Rutherford dust.  I strongly recommend stocking up on this terrific value.

Description

From Ken’s Wine Guide, “This pitch black colored Meritage from Foley Johnson is an extremely good wine for the money. It opens with a fragrant black cherry and black currant bouquet with a hint of coffee. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, silky and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a delicious black currant and blackberry blend with notes of oak and coffee. I also detected a hint of strawberry licorice towards the end. The finish is dry and its moderate refined tannins show very nice length. This wine is ready to go and would be a perfect pairing for a filet mignon. Enjoy...”
