2014 Tasting Notes

We have been experiencing a severe drought for 2 years now! Our harvest did not yield the tonnage of fruit reaped in previous years, but what was picked is so beautiful. High concentration of skin to juice ratio is giving these wines profound flavors.

A fragrant, complex wine. The drought has brought us deep expression of the fruit. The luxuriance of the Estate Cabernet is magnified by the deep garnet color that frolics into ruby edges in the light.

Aromatic blackberries and rich oak undertones introduce the wine to the nose and carry over to the flavor giving the wine appreciator a uniquely satisfying experience.

This wine moves like velvet fruit over the palate. It has a unique tannic structure that balances the vanilla and compliments the rich oak flavors. The finish is wonderful which allows it to be appreciated on its own or with any meal.


As a result of 3 years of drought, we have very intense concentration and expression of the fruit. On the nose you perceive an intensity of black cherry. The warmth of oak and fruit is evenly balanced with the depth of vanilla and black plums.

With your first sips the velvety soft tannins roll through the beginning. Upon further discovery, the flavors of dark fruit, currants, and spice entice your palette.

On the finish, the dessert course is presented. The finish is long lasting. So very approachable and perfect for sharing tonight.

This is when the grapes start to change from green to red…about 4 days into this process.

This is an indicator that we are about 80-90 days away from harvest!
