2014 Vintage

The 2014 harvest came right on the heels of bottling. With barely a week to change gears our focus quickly turned back to our vineyards. 2014 was an ideal growing season. However, we were constantly asked by many consumers and journalists about the effects of the drought. Ironically, the drought was actually a benefit. The temperate growing season combined with a lack of water and an even weather pattern created mature fruit of intense concentration. 

For E16, 2014 will go down as a very special vintage. It is our third vintage, and according to the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, 3 is the noblest of all digits. It is the only number to equal the sum of all the terms below it. Interestingly enough, 2014 is equal to the sum of the vintages that preceded it. The last two years provided us with insights in the vineyards allowing us to highlight and fine tune their attributes. The resulting wines possess greater balance, elegance and finesse.

Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Savory aromas of underbrush and flora compliment the aromas of cherry and strawberry. Both savory and fruity on the palate, with flavors of black cherry, pomegranate, pine needle, and woodland herbs. Shy initially, picking up interest over time in the glass. Finishes on a sweet cherry high note.

Gorgeous, deep dark fruit aromas waft from the glass in this vivid, racy and pure wine. A concentrated but not heavy black-cherry note starts in the aroma, drives through the flavors and on the the lingering finish. Bracing acidity and fine but firm tannins add an elegant, appetizing mouthfeel. It will improve through 2022.
