Nested deep in our vineyards stood a dilapidated 100-year-old skinning shed called the "Ye Old Buck Shack". We loved the beauty and history of this old building. We restored it and converted it into a whiskey bar on our property called "Sheep Camp". The shack looks and feels like an old Western movie and it serves as a special place for us to gather and use bad judgment.
For the third drought year in a row, 2014 harvest was early, mostly due to lack of water. Once ripening began, the hot, dry summer threatened to turn our precious grapes into raisins and it was a race to get them off the vines and into fermenters. It was a smaller crop than average, but intense concentration. We, the winemakers, picked the very best fruit from all of our finest vineyard sites.... After a bottle of whiskey. In honor of using bad judgment, we laid these wines down in some expensive new barrels and let it age. What came from it was dangerous deliciousness in a bottle. Be careful with this one, don't get in trouble.
