VINTAGE

The 2014 vintage was another dry year for the vineyard and most of the precipitation occurred just before bud break. The spring rain was a welcome sight as it allowed for normal vine canopy growth. The rest of the growing season consisted of cool mornings and warm days. Much like the previous vintage, this growing period began earlier than anticipated. The fruit was harvested during the early morning on October 14th.

WINEMAKING

The grapes were de-stemmed, crushed, cold macerated for 24 hours and punched down throughout fermentation to extract as much flavor as possible. The wine was then pressed into barrels for malolactic fermentation and aged 28 months in French oak (25% new).

TASTING NOTES

The fruit for our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon came from the valley floor of Bennet Vineyard in the Coombsville AVA. The wine has a dark color and a highly aromatic nose featuring rich dark druit and earth notes. The palate is rich and dense with round and balanced tannins and a long black cherry finish. While this wine drinks beautifully now it will continue to improve over the next decade.
