Named for the cool, grey banks of fog that drift over our vineyards in the early morning Fog Catcher represents the pinnacle of our estate winemaking philosophy. We hand pick and ferment each block of our vineyards independently and after months of barrel aging, the best 27 barrels of wine earn a place in this blend. In 2015, a co-fermentation of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc formed the base of this wine with all six Bordeaux varietals bringing different elements of fruit, structure and spice. We composed the final blend and returned it to barrel as a single entity for a total of 29 months, achieving a flavor profile only attainable from this type of cohesive aging.
