“The 2014 vintage was characteristically warm and dry. Yet, the harvest on August 22nd was one of the earliest ever, due to an unusually mild and warm spring.

The grapes were picked at 21 degrees Brix, with harvesting beginning at midnight and ending by dawn. We were pressing grapes by nine in the morning and had the juice chilled to 48 degrees Fahrenheit before lunch.  Shockingly, two days later a 6.0 earthquake rolled through the Napa Valley, splitting adjacent tanks and spilling wine, but fortunately sparing the 2014 Dancing Crow vintage from a similar fate.

Fermentation was a delicate balance of preserving fruit intensity and freshness while developing depth and textual definition. We set aside a small lot to undergo lees stirring, to enhance texture and length. 100% of our blend was fermented cold to capture floral and fruit aromas and preserve fruit intensity.”
