The 2014 Vintage

The weather of 2014 was close to ideal for grape growing. Spring was quite temperate, and as is typical in the Walla Walla Valley, bud break occurred in mid-April. Summer was the warmest on record! The warm days continued into fall and were coupled with cool nights, allowing for the perfect development of our trademark acidity. The wines of this vintage are beautifully structured, ripe, and expressive.
