Among the earliest harvests on record here in Amador County. The very first fruit got here on August 11th with the last lots being processed on September 26th. We experienced a very early bud break due to the mild winter season. Summer season temperatures were warm except for the common mid-July heat spikes for a duration of 7-10 days. Our grapes ripened exceptionally well and produced phenomenally high quality fruit for a 3rd vintage in a row. The wines from 2014 are vibrant, full-bodied, complex and tasty with exceptional natural acidity.
