Growing Season NotesMerlot struggled 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. The yields of this vintage were impacted but the quality did not suffer. Grape vines thrive when stressed and this Merlot is a proven example.

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. Merlot specifically exhibiting rich ruby color, bright fruit and balanced tannins.
