Growing Season NotesCabernet Sauvignon was the shining star in the 2015 growing season. A severe temperature fluctuation in November of 2014 inhibited the vines from reaching dormancy before a hard frost. Over 40% of the harvest in the Snake River AVA was lost. Cabernet Sauvignon exceeded expectations in both quality and yield.

Growing Season Notes2014 growing season was warmer than average for Idaho. The long, warm growing season ensured the ripeness of all varietals and the overall yields were elevated over previous seasons. A strong year for growing reds, particularly Bordeaux varietals. Cabernet Sauvignon displayed ripe blackberry notes with balanced acidity and firm tannin structure.
