Product Description

The name refers to the dramatic mountainous landscape of California, where the fog provides unique viticultural opportunities with a cooler microclimate and a longer growing season. Fog Mountain builds on Boisset’s environmental conscience with a range of organic, biodynamic and sustainable farming.

Vineyards

Fog Mountain’s California Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from select Cabernet grapes grown throughout California. The grapes are selected from vineyards that practice sustainable agriculture.

Vinification

After fermentation, the wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation. The final blend was aged, partially in oak, for six months prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

This wine, a deep garnet in the glass, opens with alluring aromas of dark red fruit. This luscious Cabernet Sauvignon presents rich flavors of dried plums, Medjool dates, red currants and bright berries flavours on the palate. The wine has soft, round tannins and a lingering finish.
