2014 Estate Red Wine
Our 2014 Estate Red Wine is a true representation of Figgins Estate Vineyard in its prime.
Perfectly situated on the south slope where Mill Creek enters the Walla Walla Valley, Figgins Estate Vineyard experiences an incredibly rapid evening cooling from the nearby Blue Mountains at sunset. This consistent diurnal shift is what maintains the grapes’ beautiful acidity and balance in warm, rich vintages such as this. Now entering the vineyard’s 15th leaf, this vintage shows the site’s ability to produce world-class fruit.
The wine is deeply colored and bursts from the glass with baking spices, pan-reduced brambles, blueberry, and dried fig. It is delightfully fresh with a deep current of ripe fruit that runs the course of the palate. The ultra-fine tannins provide for a long and smooth finish. I'm very proud of my team’s effort to bring this single vineyard expression to you!
