An extremely dry winter began the 2015 growing season, giving us year number three of the drought. Unusually warm days in January and February were cause for concern. However, rain came in March and April at just the right time to recharge the ground water for the early growing season. Warm, dry weather extended into summer, with very few heat spikes and ideal growing conditions. Harvest came fast and early with ripe flavors at sugar levels lower than normal. The fruit tasted beautiful as it came into the winery. Harvest finished earlier than normal and in December 2015, the winery had almost 20 inches of rain in two weeks - a welcome relief for the dry vineyards!
