Vintage Notes:

Dubbed a “Winemaker’s Dream Vintage” the 2018 growing season in Napa saw cooler than average temperatures throughout Spring and Summer. An abundance of rain in February was followed by continuous days of sunshine and mild temperatures that made for uniform vines and even cluster growth. With no major heat spikes to contend with, there was no need to rush through harvest. Cooler temperatures allowed us to pick when we wanted, without stress and under optimal conditions. The gift from Mother Nature translated to wines that not only have great concentration but also an amazing freshness.
