2014 is a much overlooked and underrated Bordeaux vintage. Following a mild wet winter, the season started early and generally Spring was mild to warm with successful flowering. June was hot but with some severe thunderstorms across the region. July was wet and August cold. But an Indian style summer in September saved the vintage providing good quality fruit in small quantities.
Paradise Rescued BlockTwo 2014 is a 75% Merlot 25% Cabernet Franc Bordeaux blend.
“All our tasting thus far shows Paradise Rescued BlockTwo 2014 as an exceptional wine building on the first time success of 2012. The wine is softening very nicely and the richness of the 60 year old Merlot vines is magnificent.” David Stannard, Owner.
