2013 was a long, even growing season with few surprises. While the crops seemed large, there was still plenty of sun to ripen each cluster. Summer was mild with very few days above the mid-90’s. With little rain during the growing season, mold and mildew pressures were low. We picked the crop at its optimal stage and although, quantity was high, so was the quality. Our 2013 wines are complex and elegant as well as being deep and rich.
