2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
Who is the “Big Shot” for whom this vineyard is affectionately named? That would be John Fetzer’s brother, Joe Fetzer, who was raised as a winegrower and is considered one of the pioneers in Mendocino County grape growing. Joe’s vineyard, located on a hillside overlooking Saracina Ranch, lives up to its name. Ruggedly terraced on a steep, southeast facing slope, it makes a bold statement. But Joe has a soft side, as does the vineyard, which avoids the intense late afternoon sun, and thus preserves the Bordeaux varietal character.
