Vintage Notes

After a dry winter, warm February rains forced early bud break. Unseasonable hot weather in March accelerated growth and made the vines susceptible to hard frosts that came in early April. Bloomtime heat further reduced the crop. After one last heat spell in July, August and September were moderate, even cool, allowing ripening to proceed gradually.
