Early! Budbreak in 2014 was nearly 3 weeks early with great growing conditions: No frost, warm days/cool nights during the growing season with harvest finishing 10 days early. While quality is excellent due to tiny berry size, yields were small due to our 3rd year of drought.The grapes were hand harvested, then crushed into a stainless fermentor. 24 hours later, the must was inoculated with FX-10 yeast then pumped over daily for 14 days prior to pressing. After completion of malo-lactic fermentation, this cabernet sauvignon was aged for 24 months in French and Hungarian oak prior to bottling.
