Vintage Notes:

2019 provided us with an unprecedented growing season. Moderate to cooler temperatures in early spring resulted in a delayed start followed by showers during bloom in May. However, continual moderate temperatures from June through August allowed vines to balance their growth. By early August, as cluster size was fully developed and overall growth more harmonious, it was clear that 2019 would be a memorable vintage. To retain freshness, concentration and protect the supple flavors in our Chardonnay grapes, we harvested some vineyards slightly earlier than usual, resulting in incredibly balanced wines.
