Vintage Notes

The 2015 Vintage was hot in the Yakima Valley, but the success was due to our cool nights during ripening and experienced farming care. A long history with our estate vineyard afforded us good vine care and a fairly predictable harvest.

With 2015 being one of the warmest vintages in the history of Washington wines, this warm vintage created mesmerizing wines that will hold up for decades to come. Hot days allow the grapes to ripen to their full potential where Washington’s trademark cool nights allowed the wines natural acidity to become very balanced. When you factor in these two elements, it creates an equation for fruit forward wines that are impeccably balanced.

The pace of the 2015 harvest was very ideal for most wineries as we started off in late August/early September and ending around the 3rd week of October. The grapes ripened at a very predictable pace allowing for a quite smooth flow of harvest. Red wines from the 2015 vintage are grand with very dark and concentrated colors, the flavors are intense with a big showcase of darker fruits and ample tannins with very balanced acidity.
