2014 Novum

2014 Novum

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. Novum continues to be an exercise in Cabernet Franc, so it is this variety from EMV Block 10 that drives the aromas and flavor, and in 2014 we bring in a bit of Tannat for backbone and the flavors of darkness.

61% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot, 9% Tannat, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot
