Horse Heaven Hills
The 2015 vintage was HOT, HOT, HOT! Following a mild winter, the growing season started in late March with early heat and vine development. The hot temperatures continued until harvest which was about 2 weeks earlier than usual. Although abnormally hot the vines produced beautiful fruit. The Gunselman Bench Cabernet was harvested on September 28th and October 5th. The wines have intense flavors, beautiful color & excellent balance.
