Description

Fog Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Fog Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep garnet in the glass and 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.

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. The 2015 growing season was one of the earliest harvests on record, featuring variability in crop size, with some grapes affected more than others. An early bud-break in spring led to a protracted bloom and fruit set, followed by cool weather that extended deep into May. Heat was minimal throughout the summer, but fruit ripened steadily, even as early September rainfall slowed the pace momentarily. In the end, this was a slightly less abundant harvest than the immediately previous years.

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

Fog Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon forms part of the Boisset Collection. The name pays homage to the Californian mountain ranges and the cooling fog, which have a huge influence in Californian viticulture. The mountains offer unique climate conditions and varied soils on which to plant vines, whilst the fog, with its cooling effect, creates the ideal microclimate, prolonging the growing season and allowing the grapes to fully ripen.

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.
