Growing Season Notes A cool wet spring delayed the start of the 2019 growing season, pushing bud break into mid-April. Summer was idyllic marked by warm days and cool nights and an abundance of sunshine. The weather was without heat spikes that can be so detrimental to the vines. These perfect conditions allowed slow sugar accumulation and excellent acid retention within the clusters. The cooler growing season set the stage for a wine with tremendous structure and silky tannins.

Growing Season Notes 2018 was an exceptional growing season with bud break in mid April, and a gradual temperature increases to flower set and fruit set. The growing season was long with gradient temperatures allowing fruit to develop without extreme heat stress. Harvest began in early October and a long Indian summer assured that all fruit was ripe with nice acidity.
