The Story: It all began in 1990 when Clay & Tersilla (T) met while working at a large Napa winery. In 1995 they were married and purchased a property – with sheep – The deal was that the owner only would sell it, if they kept the sheep. So when it came time name the winery, T said “Inherit the Sheep” since we will not inherit anything else in our lives. The rest, as you know is history. With an ace (100 Point) winemaker behind the wheel, Inherit The Sheep has produced some amazing wines over the past years and he is producing A+ wines from the 4 acre vineyard.

 

The Wine: The previous year’s re-grafting continues to result in exceptional yields and the quality of the 14 vintage has gone up even more than I could have hoped. In fact, this vintage is flat out mind-boggling!  On the nose you are welcomed by gobs of gorgeous black fruit, a hint of chocolate and a touch of underbrush that balance out the bouquet.  On the palate this bold, lush wine serves up a bright and powerful platter of gorgeous black currant and black berry fruit laced with dark chocolate, anise and a touch of leather. The palate overflows with flavors that linger into a long and complex finish. As always LIMITED PRODUCTION!!

 

Winery Notes: "The 2014 is a rich and ripe expression of our little vineyard.  2014 was a nearly perfect vintage without any real challenges and the resulting wine is supple, yet robust because of the very fine growing season. The flavors, texture and aromas are similar to those of the 2012, but the richness of the 2013 also shows in the 2014 vintage. This vintage is certainly one of the finest Inherit The Sheep bottlings since we embarked on this great adventure back in 2002!"
