Growing Season Notes A cool, wet spring led to a slow start of the 2019 growing season. The mild summer provided consistent, even ripening without extreme heat. An early frost brought an abrupt end to the season in Mid-October. But lower yields and a perfect summer brought out a complex, balanced and nuanced 2019 vintage.
