Vintage

I would describe the 2014 growing season as hot and uneventful, just the way we like it. The year started with a mild late winter rolling into a pleasant warm spring with very few frost events. Bud break occurred about the 10th of April, a little early but not unusual, and from there we were off to the races. Heat built quickly with a much warmer than average late spring and stayed hot into mid-September. This set us up to declare 2014 the hottest vintage in our 30+ years farming along the Snake River.


Winemaker Comments

Luscious aromas of pear, jasmine and honeysuckle rise from the glass. Sweet flavors of ripe tropical fruits and flowers open this wine, followed by a crisp, clean, acidic finish that leaves palate re-freshed. With flavors and aromas to spare, you will find this wine is quite versatile as a warm weather quencher or as a great start to a fine meal.
