The summer of 2014 marked the warmest summer on record in the Walla Walla Valley. Spring was cool and dry, with bud break occurring right on time in mid-April. Once it started warming up, it didn’t stop. It was actually so warm during the month of July that the vineyard shut down and pushed our picking date by 2 weeks, putting us back in line with our average harvest date in mid-September. Despite the amount of heat units we received, meticulous work in the vineyard and precise picking dates enabled us to remain consistent with our elegant and balanced style.
Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 2% Cab Franc, & 2% Petit Verdot
92 POINTS - "Pepper Bridge in a warm vintage seems to almost double down on its structural prowess..." - Wine & Spirits
91 POINTS - "Peppery Bridge's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller amounts of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is a classic Cabernet that has lots of perfumed herbs, flowers and darker currants and plum fruit. Rich, mouth-filling and beautifully textured, like just about every 2014, it's already drinking nicely, yet it's going to keep for 15+ years." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
