Winemakers Tasting Notes
Growing Season 2018:

In 2018 we experienced the driest winter on record.  This was followed by a dry and warm spring which set us up for a compressed harvest. We were kissed by a small amount of hail January, but we were just outside the line of fire and did not have any damage as a result.  Heat spikes caused some concern during February, however with careful canopy management we were able to evade the effects of sunburn and stress. Overall a year of high quality and fruitful yields.
