One of the finest growing seasons of the past decade.
A concentrated harvest with high-quality fruit.
A stellar vintage to end the drought.
Another vintage to make us all smile.
Epic vintage. Near perfect conditions with yields to match.
Quite simply, 2013 offered us truly wonderful conditions and allowed each vineyard to shine despite the recent statewide drought.
Post-card growing season helped nurture a good crop of brilliant quality. A welcome respite from more difficult years.
A challenging vintage but one we relished. Cool and wet spring followed by late rains during harvest caused some concern.
Temperature extremes pushed us and our vineyards but the efforts paid off with resulting high quality.
A joy of a vintage with near perfect growing conditions throughout the year.
A difficult year - with frost, heat and drought all making an appearance.
An ideal, if early, vintage with consistent weather and temperatures throughout the season.
A cool spring was tempered by a hot July but overall, a cooler and more elegant year.
Marked by cool weather that allowed fruit to mature gracefully. A sleek vintage.
Excellent year. Slightly earlier harvest due to warmer temperatures.
