Winemaking Notes
The 2014 Rockaway has wonderful concentrated fl avors of black cherry, red currant and plum with a hint of sage and leather. The earthy minerality of the wine is balanced out by notes of baking spices with a rich, complex structure and a long lingering finish. Enjoy this wine now or cellar it for enjoyment in 8 to 10 years.
Vineyard Notes
Established in 1994, Rockaway is planted mostly to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but includes all five of the classic Bordeaux varieties. Rising up to an elevation of 750 feet, the land generally slopes northeast and southwest, with soils comprised of gravelly clay subsoil over fractured sandstone. This well-drained, low pH earth tends to encourage the production of small-berried clusters, ideal for making a bold, concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon with juicy red and black fruit character, and an elegantly round and seductive mid-palate.
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. Most of the Cabernet was picked by the time we received a light rain on the evening of September 17. We took a break from picking at Rockaway, allowing the vineyard to completely dry out, and for the sugars to accumulate in the last few blocks of Cabernet and Petit Verdot at the very top of the vineyard, which we picked on October 6.
