This is a vivid and alluring wine with aromas of honeysuckle, orange blossom, peach and apricot. The palate is plush and full of stone fruit and ripe apple flavors, with just a kiss of tannin, and a hint of fresh bread dough on the finish.
The 2014 growing season was our third exceptional vintage in a row, and one of our earliest harvests on record, with our final grapes arriving at the winery on October 14 - almost two weeks earlier than normal. Though the vintage presented drought conditions, perfectly timed spring rains were just what the vines needed to set an excellent crop. After an early budbreak, ideal summer weather allowed us to harvest all of our varieties at optimum ripeness, resulting in wines with alluring aromatics and beautiful fruit complexity.
