Growing Season Notes 2020 was a textbook growing season. Bud break in the vineyard in mid-April with gradient temperature increases throughout the growing season. A long Fall harvest enabled the fruit to finish with both flavor and acids. Grapes ripened slowly creating a well-balanced fruit forward wine.
