2015 was quite a year! The continued drought had a major impact in the vineyard. Bud break and consequently harvest were both very early. Plus, continued lack of rain prompted the vines to hold on to their resources resulting in one of the smallest harvests across the Napa Valley. We were down 30%!
Yet, what the vines took in production they gave back in quality. The 2015 vintage is absolutely awesome; rich, silky and beautiful. You can expect these wines to be in high demand with very little to go around.
In 2015 our Eternity Reserve Cabernet’s following continued to grow. Our 2012 & 2013 Cabernets received stellar reviews and high scores from Robert Parker and James Laube and the 2014 Wild Iris was sold out within months of release. Thanks to our team; Josh Clark of Clark-Vineyard Management and winemakers Frederic Delivert & Jean Hoefliger for these great wines!
Watch for our 2015 Wild Iris release and 2011 Three Stones Cabernet for Care offering in February. Our 2013 Eternity release will not be too far behind followed by the 2013 traditional Estate Cabernet next fall. We can’t wait to share these wines with you.
Happy New Year!
