Winemaker’s Notes

On the nose, the Central Coast is quite reticent at first but opens up with elements of plum and hoisin sauce. With some air, notes of black cherry and pomegranate emerge from the glass with a subtle lift of cocoa powder and vanilla bean. The palate bursts with cherry and plum flavors. The weight on the mid-palate gives way to the prototypical chalky, mineral flavor profile of wines from this site. The wine finishes with a wonderful cherry pit and coffee bean impression. The 2014 is a sensational offering that can be enjoyed in the near term.

The Vineyard

100% Vista Verde Vineyard, located a couple miles south-east of Hollister, California, near the small town of Tres Pinos in San Benito County. This heavy limestone vineyard is separated into nine blocks that include clones such as Pommard, Calera, Canada, 667, Mt. Eden, and Swan.

Harvest 2014

Continuing the string of great vintages, 2014 completes the trifecta of extremely high quality growing seasons. The 2014s exhibit a great purity of place, with generous fruit and elegant textures. The 2014 growing season started out as one of the driest winters on record with only 40% of normal rainfall by mid-season. Due to the extremely dry conditions over the winter months, many of the vineyards were irrigated in December and January to ensure the vines had enough moisture, effectively mimicking winter rainfall. It was another early bud break season; almost 14 days earlier than “normal.” When rain in early April finally appeared it helped replenish the soil’s moisture profile to re-invigorate the plants and boost growth. May brought flowering, as expected, and fruit set was bountiful overall for a third straight year. The harvest season was near perfect with warm temperatures, which allowed for a leisurely picking schedule. 2014 was a wonderful growing season that has yielded another fine set of wines that speak of the place. In short, 2014 is another superb vintage of compelling nature and should allow for long-range cellaring for those to choose to age their wines for 7- 10 years.
