Growing Season NotesAs a whole, the 2015 vintage yielded high quality but limited quantity fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah were standout varietals. Early ripening, fruit forward reds such as Malbec and Syrah benefited from the warm, dry summer yielding great intensity to the resulting wines. A strong fall cooling trend throughout the Northwest allowed for longer hang time for late ripening varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon. This varietal maintained well–balanced structure throughout the ripening period with strong color, tannins, and balanced acidity.
