2014 Eluvium

2014 Eluvium

An unusually cold winter and the risk of spring frost led to uncertain vine health and delayed budbreak by two weeks. The summer was unusually mild, in some ways similar to 2013. Sugar accumulation was slow, acidity remained relatively high until a September heat wave ripened the late-pick whites and reds quickly.

In 2014 we introduced Quaker Run (our remote vineyard location) Merlot to the red blends, resulting in more density and aromatic purity. The Quaker Run wines manage to have presence and persistence without being coarse or aggressive in tannin. With the Eluvium we sought to frame Merlot; while we blended some Merlot from our Early Mountain Block 10, our prized Merlot from our Quaker Run vineyard takes the lead. We also blended 20% Petit Verdot for structure and power.

76% Merlot, 19% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
