Vintage 2013 fruit from our vineyards revealed the highest recorded tannin and color potential yet seen in Washington. Our vintage portfolio carries a volume and weight that matched our house style of bold, rich and smooth reds, age worthy for decades. Spring 2013 began the growing season without problems. Flowering on June 4th at Dionysus Vineyard afforded an early ripening vintage. Summer temperatures were hotter than average with a dozen days over 100F. Verasion was early in August under good conditions, a hallmark of great vintages. We then green-thinned the vines to the low yield of 2.5 tons per acre. Waiting until two weeks after the equinox, we harvested the Cabernet perfectly ripe.
