The vintages of 2012 and 2013 were huge. In fact, they were record-breaking. 2014 was pretty big too, despite an 8% drop from the previous year. An early bud break and a smaller crop size resulted in accelerated ripening and one of the earliest harvests on record. An extended drought and unexpected earthquake did their best to mess with the vines, but quality reigned in the end. Grape bunches consisting of small berries with good concentration were the norm across most California wine regions. This is especially true of Paso Robles, where water is scarcer than ever. Here, the grapes ended up with a high skin to juice ratio.It’s a pleasure to bring to you our third vintage of Iron Side Cabernet Sauvignon. The look may have changed a little, but you can expect the same bold, electrifying experience when you pop the cork.
