The 2014 vintage was a much easier vintage compared to 2013 in many ways than one. You'll hear a lot of talk about the differences with the weather at harvest as the main reason for the differences between these vintages, but that is very simplified and an inaccurate view. There are subtle changes that farmers make each vintage. Sometimes these changes are due to weather, vine age, crop load, pruning practices, and hundreds of other possible changes. Each of these changes made will have an impact on the fruit and resulting wine. Weather is an important factor, but it is not the best indicator of wine quality.
