OUR WINE

 

2015 Vintage

 

In 2015, a historically early start to the growing season was followed by a warmer-than-normal spring. Continued warm weather in early summer advanced vine development. Mid-to-late summer was especially warm, including 2-3 weeks with highs over 100 degrees. A mild fall allowed for full phenolic development in the grapes, resulting in fresh, flavorful wines with fine aging potential.

2014 vintage

 

The 2014 vintage was warm and dry, providing ideal growing conditions for producing wines with great fruit and refined tannins. The wines show the ripeness of the warm summer days and the freshness that our cooler evenings provide. This year’s 2014 blend displays more forward fruit and texture than the previous two vintages allowing for early enjoyment.

2013 VINTAGE

 

The 2013 vintage was one of the warmest on record for Washington.  We found letting the canopy grow and protect our clusters was a key strategy in maintaining fruit flavors and acidity.  There were a number of days over 100 degrees which initially concerned us but as we started fermentations and tasted the resulting wine we enjoyed the mature flavors that developed.

2012 VINTAGE

 

The 2012 growing season was our first in Washington, and we were lucky in getting a perfect year. A relatively mild winter followed by some spring rains resulted in nature doing most of the crop thinning for us by setting a reasonable crop size. A couple of the usual hot spells moved maturity forward without straining the vines. Harvest started in mid-September and wrapped up before the end of October.
