Vintage report

A warm, dry, early summer lead to a very hot January and February with record Grower Degree Days (up 16%). A significant rain event in March and 3 weeks of unsettled weather following, rainfall was moderate to low but very high humidity. Not a classic vintage, but the settled weather from early April resulted in some exceptional red wines, particularly the Cabernet familyand Syrah.
