Fog Catcher Niner 2014
93 Points Robert Parkers Wine Advocate:
Composed of 37% Cabernet Franc, 29% Petit Verdot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Malbec, the 2014 Fog Catcher reveals a very deep garnet-black color and is scented of cassis, black berries and warm plums plus suggestions of pencil shavings, sautéed herbs, dusty earth and Indian spices. The medium to full-bodied palate is full-on gorgeous with grainy, beautifully ripe tannins, expressive fruit that simply sings with vibrancy and a lovely savory background, finishing with impressive persistence. Still pretty firm and youthful, give it another year or two in bottle and drink it over the next 15+.
