AGING: This wine gains complexity and pays dividends from cellaring. Drinks well 2018-2026.
VINTAGE 2014: The Eagle Foothills and surrounding Snake River Valley harvest was as close to ideal as it gets. The region enjoyed a nice warm summer with perfect diurnal swings (or night time cooling off temperatures) that allowed for picture perfect ripening conditions for whites and reds. An unusually long growing season started in the early Spring and extended into late Fall. Harvest began in mid-September for whites and ran through the very end of October for red varietals.
