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.

Winemaker Notes: “Classically black ruby in color, our inaugural release of Saracina Cabernet Sauvignon shows true varietal aromatics of currant, black olive, toasted oak, and savory herbs. The palate is supple and elegant, with rich black cherry flavors, graceful tannins, and a long finish. Cabernet’s food-friendly character means that it pairs well with a wide range of dishes, from a simple rosemary-thyme-rubbed roast chicken to braised beef short ribs or a steak.”
