    THE VINTAGE:
    The 2016 vintage experienced the best of both worlds with a hot spring and early summer. A cooler than normal end of the ripening season allowed the wines to have ripeness, yet maintain freshness and elegance.
    The early dry and warm spring, combined with cooler temperatures in August and September, slowed down ripening
    and resulted in the longest harvest on record in Washington State.
    Overall, 2016 saw very favorable growing conditions, producing wines with nicely resolved tannins and maturity.

    WINEMAKING:
    Red varieties including Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache were gently destemmed and fermented for 7–10 days on the skins.
    After fermentation and malolactic conversion, most of the wine was held in stainless steel. Only a small portion saw some French oak to add a little structure and a layer of aromatic complexity. The goal was to preserve fresh fruit flavors.
    Most of the varieties were vinified separately with the final blend being assembled just weeks prior to bottling. The exception was Viognier co-fermented with Syrah.

    FLAVOR PROFILE:
    Juicy and fruit-forward, 14 Hands Run Wild showcases a vibrant blend of red grape varieties with flavors of ripe blueberries, black currants and black raspberries. Soft tannins, lively acidity, and a lingering finish allow for endless pairing options. - Keith Kenison, Winemaker
