Winemaker Jason Drew Notes
This wine has exotic and intoxicating aromas of cherry incense, a mixture of red and blue fruits along with lilac and a hint of leather with a sensation of salinity that suggests coastal climate. The tannins are soft and sleek which play nicely with the lasting acidity, providing a consistent and mouthwatering finish. The Fog-Eater designation is our Anderson Valley AVA blend made from two organically farmed sites that are heavily influenced by the coastal fog. This coastal fog continues to be pulled in from the coast cooling these vineyard sites and encouraging beautiful structure, lively acidity and pure fruit.

Fog-Eater is a regional ‘Boontling’ term used by the early settlers of Anderson Valley. During this e ...more... arly history these settlers created a regional dialect that is better known as ‘Boontling’. Fog-Eater is a pejorative term used to describe a coastal dweller, someone living out on the margin.

Each site is chosen for its ability to add a distinctive layer to the finished wine. The blend may vary with each passing vintage. This wine was made to embody a heightened level of complexity, roundness and freshness. This is signature Anderson Valley!
