2014 Buck Shack Cabernet Sauvignon

For the third drought year in a row, 2014 was early, mostly due to lack of water. Once ripening began, the hot, dry summer threatened to turn our precious grapes into raisins and it was a race to get them off the vines and into fermenters. It was a smaller crop than average, but intense concentration.

Tasting Notes

We, the winemakers, picked the very best fruit from all of our finest vineyard sites.... After a bottle of whiskey.  In honor of using bad judgment, we laid these wines down in some expensive new barrels and let it age.  What came from it was dangerous deliciousness in a bottle.  Be careful with this one, don't get in trouble.
