Horse Heaven Hills
The 2012 vintage was downright abundant compared to the reduced crop of 2011! We started slowly due to an unusually cool and damp June. By July the days warmed and we were seeing the "normal" heat units. We experienced some haze and humid weather with severe thunderstorms, perhaps caused by the significant Wenatchee Complex fire. We did not see any "smoke taint" to the vines (or wines.)
We did not bottle a Gunselman Bench Cabernet Sauvignon in 2011.
The 2012 Horse Heaven Hills Gunselman Bench Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Gunselman Bench, our estate vineyard. It was aged in 100% French (70% new) oak for 23 months. The alcohol by volume is 14%. It was bottled September 2014.
