WINEMAKING

The fruit for our 2014 Coach Gun was handpicked, sorted, and fermented naturally, then aged for 28 months in 50% new French oak barrels.  Our winemaking team refined the blend over the course of the first year of aging, and the final wine was determined just months before bottling.

HARVEST NOTES

The 2014 vintage was a classic, near-perfect growing season with warm days and cool nights. The mild summer and warm weather after verasion caused the fruit to develop with good balance, great flavors, bright acidity and mature, well-developed tannins.

Tasting Notes
TASTING NOTES The 2014 Coach Gun delivers scents of vanilla bean and black cherry on the nose. On the palate, there are hints of licorice, blackberry, and roasted coffee bean. The wine is rich in color and delivers velvety soft tannins on the finish.
