Winemaking Notes
The 2014 Brothers is a deeply rich wine with complex dark fruit flavors. The wine is voluptuous and is bursting with blackberry, plum and wonderful chocolate notes followed by a round and seductive mid-palate and a long lingering finish. Enjoy this wine now or cellar it for enjoyment in 8 to 10 years.
Vineyard Notes
In the hills to the east of the small town of Cloverdale, Brothers spans 135 acres, nearly all planted to Cabernet Sauvignon with a small amount of Malbec at the top. The vineyard is on well-drained loam underlain by sandstone, shale, and ancient greenstone. Its elevations, surpassing 1,000 feet, and its primarily western aspect perfectly situate the vines to capture the full warmth and light of the afternoon sun, ripening Cabernet well into the chocolate and black fruit profile, with exceptional richness.
Production Notes
2014 was a gift from Mother Nature to winegrowers in Sonoma County. Most of the rain for the growing season came late, in February and March, followed by a warm and dry spring. Bud break was early and the warm summer sun ripened the fruit without any complications through Harvest. Block 8 at our Brothers Vineyard was picked fully ripe on September 17, just hours before a light rain started to fall. The next spring, after a thorough blending session, Block 8, which is planted entirely to Clone 337, consistently one of our best Cabernets from Brothers, was chosen to remain unblended with the other blocks, and put to bottle as our 2014 Brothers Cabernet.
