2014 Anemometer Red Blend

2014 Anemometer Red Blend

Sip on flavors of black cherry, chocolate & more

2016 was a fairly interesting vintage - very dry in the spring and early summer and so hot and humid in July and August. The fall rain presented a challenge in the vineyard but did not materially affect the harvest. Fruit was flavorful, balanced and ripe despite coming into the cellar with slightly lower brix levels than previous vintages.

Aromas of Black cherry, chocolate, clover, and black pepper.  Flavors of raspberry, pomegranate, tart cherry, and a hint of cedar.  Full-bodied, with a clean generous finish.
