Tasting notes

This is a beautiful wine with aromas of lemon, green apple, melon, and orange blossom. The acid is really the backbone to this wine. On the pallet it is initially creamy and round through the mid pallet then the lemon, citrus, and melon flavors take over finishing with juicy acidity. It continues with mineral flavors supported by integrated notes of oak, which rounds out the finish. This is a very well balanced wine, showing structure and acidity - a strong characteristic of Russian River Valley.

Production notes

Harvest 2014

Continuing the string of great vintages, 2014 completes the trifecta of extremely high quality growing seasons. The 2014's exhibit a great purity of place, with generous fruit and elegant textures. The 2014 growing season started out as one of the driest winters on record with only 40% of normal rainfall by mid-season. With the limited amount of water and unseasonably warm conditions. It was another early bud break season; almost 10 days earlier than “normal.” When rain in early April finally appeared it helped replenish the soil’s moisture profile to re-invigorate the plants and boost growth. May brought flowering, as expected, and fruit set was bountiful overall for a third straight year. The harvest season was near perfect with warm temperatures, which allowed for a leisurely picking schedule. 2014 was a wonderful growing season that has yielded another fine set of wines that speak of the place. In short, 2014 is another superb vintage of compelling nature and should allow for long-range cellaring for those to choose to age their wines for 7- 10 years.
