2014 was a great year for many vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley, a healthy, balanced crop coupled with a drama free growing season produced many wines of profound character. In our experience it was a stellar vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon, enabling us to produce a wine that encapsulates all the things we enjoy in a good glass of Cab.
