2014 Cleaver Red Blend
2014 The Cleaver
Vanilla, cola, ripe plum and dark cherry are all abundant in the aroma profile of this dark and seductively soft red blend. Opulent on the palate, the 2014 The Cleaver is bold and rich, while exhibiting distinct flavors of blackberry pie, coffee and angel food cake. Vibrant and mouthwatering, this wine will pair with any meal. Drink now through 2019.
One of the earliest harvests on record here in Amador County. The first fruit arrived on August 11th with the last lots being processed on September 26th. We experienced a very early bud break due to the mild winter. Summer temperatures were warm except for the typical mid-July heat spikes for a period of 7-10 days. Our grapes ripened exceptionally well and produced phenomenally high quality fruit for a 3rd vintage in a row. The wines from 2014 are vibrant, full-bodied, complex and savory with exceptional natural acidity.
