The opinion of many is that 2014 was an excellent vintage. Bud break was early with the warm, dry spring weather. The growing season was mild with development in berry growth occurring earlier than normal. A cool August lengthened out the harvest although we still began picking a week to ten days earlier than usual. With a lighter than average crop load things progressed rapidly and all of the fruit was in the winery by the end of September. Overall the entire vintage can be described as light, early but excellent, another vintage year in Sonoma County.
This wine is complex and ever changing, it’s rich and inviting on the nose. The first impression is subtle notes of black currants, Bing cherries and
blackberries overlain with hints of cedar, sandal wood and a smoky rainforest. The finish is mouthwatering and leaves the palate wanting more. One bottle is not enough. This wine is drinking fantastic now but has the tannins and complexity to age another 6-7 years. Cheers!
