2014 HH Artist Series Petite Verdot
Bing cherries, plums, and sweet oak spice. This wine is powerful yet smooth.
Bing cherries, plums, oak and spice mingle together for an exotic aromatic profile. The wine starts off with rich fruit flavors but has a tart cranberry flavor that cuts through the finish. Barrel notes of tar and dark chocolate combine with a toasty touch. The wine needs to be decanted or aged a few more years before it shows its true potential.

2014 Vineyard Review
2014 was a hot vintage in Eastern Washington. Coyote Canyon Vineyard had a great vintage and the crop turned out exceptional. Summer was hot but we didn't have a to many days over 100 degrees which allowed the crop to ripen at a nice even pace. When Fall arrived the grapes were ready a few weeks ahead of schedule. The red grapes were handpicked and then destemmed at the winery.
We are pleased and excited to share the wonderful wines from the 2014 vintage with all of you.
