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.
The foundation of the 2016 Fog Catcher is a co-ferment of our best block of Cabernet Sauvignon with a small amount of Petit Verdot. After harvest, a selection of other noteworthy Bordeaux barrels were marked and tucked away into the cellar to mature. Nearly a year later, our Winemaker revisited each barrel to make his final decision on which barrels qualified for this wine. The composed blend then returned oak barrels for additional aging. The 2016 vintage of Fog Catcher is a harmonious blend of intriguing spice, dark fruits and expansive tannins that linger on your palate for minutes after drinking. This wine is rewarding to drink in its youth, and the high potential it has for aging 10+ years is apparent.
BLEND 45% cabernet sauvignon, 26% malbec, 15% Carménère, 14% petit verdot
