One of the finest growing seasons of the past decade.

A concentrated harvest with high-quality fruit. 

2016

A stellar vintage to end the drought.

2015

Another vintage to make us all smile.

Epic vintage. Near perfect conditions with yields to match.

2013

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.

Temperature extremes pushed us and our vineyards but the efforts paid off with resulting high quality.

A difficult year - with frost, heat and drought all making an appearance.

2007

An ideal, if early, vintage with consistent weather and temperatures throughout the season.

2006

A cool spring was tempered by a hot July but overall, a cooler and more elegant year.

2005

Marked by cool weather that allowed fruit to mature gracefully. A sleek vintage.

2004

Excellent year. Slightly earlier harvest due to warmer temperatures.
