2014 Platinum Desert Ridge Meritage
Each year, there are places in our vineyards that show us something unique - where vine maturity, soil and climate combine to create something distinctly CedarCreek. The 2014 vintage was a stunning one for our Bordeaux reds in our Desert Ridge Vineyard. The long, warm vintage never got too, too hot, and we were able to find incredible balance between flavour, ripeness and tannin development in every row we picked. A vintage like this only occurs a few times a decade. You can taste the long, warm summer of 2014 at Desert Ridge in every glass. On that, you have our word.
A not-so-little, little thing
We have a clone of Cabernet Sauvignon that is unique to us. Its tiny little berries have a uniquely high skin to juice ratio. Much of the colour and intensity in this wine comes from that clone.
