Welcome to our fall 2016 Release We’ve released our first Chardonnay and four single vineyard Pinot Noirs from the 2014 vintage. The wines are excellent – all showing great examples of the sites and soils they’re produced from. Early bud break combined with record sun hours led to an early harvest and many of our sites being ready to pick at the same time regardless of location. Yields were excellent in our Mountain fruit with very high quality. Other than the late season heat we could not have asked for a better vintage. We’re pleased to offer you what we feel our the highest quality wines to-date. We’d love your feedback after tasting the 2014’s.
