Niner Fog Catcher 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
In 2017 we began hand-harvesting our Bordeaux blocks in late-September. Our winemaking methods are exceptionally dynamic and our goal is to create a rich wine that has luxurious texture, precise tannins and an underlying freshness. Each vineyard block is harvested, pressed and barrel aged independently. Noteworthy barrels are marked, and tucked away in the cellar for a year of aging. Nearly a year later, our Winemaker revisits each barrel and selects his favorites. The final blend is created and returned back to barrels for additional aging and marrying of flavors. If you are enjoying the 2017 vintage within five years of the vintage date, we recommend decanting prior to serving. It has high aging potential and we expect it to evolve beautifully over the next 10-20 years.
