2014 Champoux Vineyard
As usual we have another brilliant vintage on our hands. In 2014, we ended up with a blend that really highlights the premier quality of fruit that comes from Champoux Vineyard. A combination of dark fruit intermingles with notes of cassis, mocha and wildflowers. This wine has a rich and smooth mouthfeel that exhibits fine-grained tannins while still maintaining a sense of lift and freshness. Classic example of Champoux Vineyard at its finest. The 2014 vintage has a lot of similarities to the 2012 vintage in terms of the style of wines made. They possess a great mid-palate depth and concentration. The season started out with a very dry winter, that led into a very warm July (though no major heat spikes) and August. September and October where noticeably warmer than previous vintages which led to a more condensed growing season. This vintage has produced wines that, despite the heat, maintain an extraordinary level of finesse and balance.
