Vintage Notes:

In 2008 California faced one of its most dramatic growing seasons in years; including, the worst frost in 30 years, heat waves, wildfire smoke and early rain. Warm temperatures, combined with the low yields due to frost, created great concentration.

In retrospect, 2008 ended up being an exceptional year for quality, but the year will not be remembered for abundance. If you didn't get hit by frost in April, heat during bloom in May, or dehydration due to heat in August, it was a lovely growing season. We had great botrytis on the late harvest varietals, and due to the low yield year with small berry size, we had very high concentration in this vintage. This concentration allowed us to protect the great finesse of these varietals with very exotic fruit on the nose.
