The Excellent 2018 Vintage
After a wet and cool winter, bud break and flowering both got off to a later than normal start. Summer brought with it nice, even temperatures with very few heat spikes allowing for wonderful phenolic development in the grapes and even ripening across all our vineyard sites. Due to the lower-than-normal summer temperatures, the grapes had long, steady ripening that allowed for wonderful sugar development yet maintained their structure. A winemaker’s dream, the 2018 vintage has produced wines that will age gracefully in your cellar yet provide exceptional pleasure upon release.
