Tasting notes

 

Cabernet Franc/ Syrah blend. This wonderful blend of 60% Cab Franc, 40% Syrah, is full bodied and brimming with dark and red berry fruit, warm toasty oak, and outstanding structure. Each grape variety reveals itself in layers of rich black cherry, plum, blackberry and cassis. Patient aging in French and eastern European oak for 18 month, had brought this blend into balance adding to its rich finish. The structure and long finish of this wine make it a perfect match for grilled meats and hearty dishes.

Production notes

Harvest 2014

Continuing the string of great vintages, 2014 completes the trifecta of extremely high quality growing seasons. The 2014s 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.
