In 2014, the growing season was ideal, it was warm and mostly dry from beginning to end. The fruit ripened evenly and it was in pristine condition at harvest time.   The resulting wines have gorgeous aromas, ripe rich fruit and great concentration yet balanced. These wines are luscious and delicious! I’m predicting you’re going to love them a lot!

Enjoy!
