You could sum up the 2014 vintage in Napa Valley in just a few words: unusually early and excellent. Drought conditions in California contributed to the long growing season with mild spring and summer weather leading to an early harvest. For many of us, harvest started two weeks ahead of normal. The crop size was somewhat smaller than the abundant 2013 vintage, but still very generous. We didn’t see any extreme temperatures during the hotter months, which allowed us to pick at optimum ripeness, with intense aromatics and great fruit character. The grapes were happily fermenting in the winery long before the potentially damaging, yet much-needed fall rains arrived.
Our Return Policy is very simple: If you don't like the wine you ordered from us, tell us, send it back to us and we will either replace it for you or reimburse the purchase price to you. Because we believe life is too short to drink wine you don't like.
HOWEVER, we are not responsible for damage caused to the wine due to the weather; heat or cold. If the weather is hot or cold, we urge that you either ask us to hold the wine(s) for you or order overnight shipping.
