2013 was an excellent growing season for red varietals. A wet spring with rains stopping just at fl owering set up an extended growing season. Daytime temperatures were warm, upwards of 88-90°F on average, while cool nights and foggy mornings allowed for slow, gentle ripening, giving full-fruit expression and brilliant minerality on the fi nish. Harvesting the fruit for this wine began on September 18 and fi nished on October 24. Brix at harvest ranged from a most desirable 23.5° to 26.3°. We're pleased with the results of this growing season: big fruit flavors with brilliant concentration and ripe tannins.
