Winemaker Notes:

Overall 2013 was an epic Napa vintage. We had limited rain with quite a bit of heat. This forced us to be creative in protecting the fruit from sun exposure through canopy management and irrigation.

The red wines in 2013 are ripe and voluptuous. Because it was a hot year in Napa Valley, we reached sugar ripeness quickly. However, we had to be patient in order for the tannins to ripen. Because we didn’t have to worry about the rain, we were able to pick at the optimum time. This gave us the ability to produce wines with concentrated aromas and tannins.
