The 2014 vintage in Washington was abundant, as were its two predecessors. Sales of these wines from the 2012 -2014 vintage have been on a significant upswing, both in DTC, on premise, and off premise markets.
The 2015 vintage was the hottest seen in Washington State, and some vineyards suffered significant crop reductions due to extreme heat and dessication. The lesser projected inventories on 2015 wines are putting the 2014 reds at a premium. Interest in these 2014s is already at a high level, even before the completion of harvest in some areas.
If you are looking at enhancing your position on 2014 reds or starting a Washington sku in your portfolio, timing is of the essence
