Niner Wine Estates is a family company dedicated to the concept that truly great wine results from talented people controlling the entire winemaking process from the vineyard to the glass. Founder Richard Niner's attachment to farming started early as he grew up farming a small plot of land with his father in rural West Virginia. Niner then followed a somewhat unusual path from farm to vineyard: after putting himself through college and graduate school, he spent over 30 years investing in small businesses. In 1996, one of these business deals brought him to San Luis Obispo County, where he found a renewed passion for farming and saw a bright future in the local wine industry.

At Niner Wine Estates they only make wine from grapes we grow ourselves. From vineyard to glass our entire team is working together with a singular goal in mind: to provide you with wines that combine within them a true expression of our vineyards and the creativity of our people. They farm three separate estate vineyards: Bootjack Ranch resting on the Eastern side of the Paso AVA, Heart Hill Vineyard settled on the Western side, and Jespersen Vineyard nestled in the Edna Valley AVA to the south. Each vineyard has very different soil profiles and climates resulting in three very unique representations of terroir.

Tasting Notes: Robert Parker 93 points- 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, sauted 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+.
