2014 Cadence Red Coda

Ben Smith describes the 2014 Cadence Red ‘Coda’ as “the nose explodes with black cherry, black raspberry, and spice that appear on the palate in waves of deep flavors. The fruit stays fresh and focused, buoyed by the natural acidity we kept by picking early. Coda’s exceptional depth and structure build through the long finish, ending with substantial fine tannins that show the pedigree of Red Mountain vineyards.” This is a superb version of Coda and will make many more expensive Washington wines pale in comparison.

2013 California Dreaming

The 2013 vintage was one of the highest quality harvests in decades in Napa Valley. Smaller in quantity than the big 2012 harvest, 2013 had slightly cooler temperatures heading into harvest, which led to higher natural acidity levels than 2012. The wines have fine and smooth tannin structures. This is a vintage to collect.
