The 2014 harvest is another one to add to the record books. Even though we are in the third year of drought here in California, the fruit quality has been only rising since the 2012 harvest. That being said, we are experiencing a drop in overall yields for 2014, but the moderate temperatures after verasion and up until harvest have created some outstanding fruit with beautiful color and complexity.
The bright, almost clear yellow and green hue of this wine shines marvelously in the summer sun. The scent of fresh tangerine and lime zest flow through the air with just a hint of wet stone in pursuit. These fresh flavors persist to the palate, where they give way to candied lemon peel and Gravenstein Apples. In the lingering acidity of this young but approachable white wine, subtle notes of spice and marjoram tempt your palate into wanting more.
Enjoy chilled with mild cheeses, spring vegetables, raw shellfish, or any light seafood dishes.

A.J. Foyt began racing cars on the national level in 1957, and three years later, he won his first of seven national Indy car championships. In 1960, Foyt won four of the 12 races he entered with all of his victories coming on the one-mile dirt tracks, normally used for horse racing events. Foyt captured his first of a record 67 victories in the Ted Horn Memorial at the Du Quoin, Ill. State Fairgrounds on Labor Day, September 5, 1960. A master of the dirt tracks, Foyt dominated the track dubbed the “Magic Mile” to claim five victories in seven attempts between 1960 and 1967. The magic was just beginning.
