Vineyard Notes:

The 2008 growing season was marked by dramatic variances in weather conditions. Periods of thick frost in the Spring lead to extraordinary heat spikes in the late Summer, with low overall rain totals throughout the maturation period. These challenging conditions handed to us by Mother Nature gave us a harvest half the size of 2007’s total yield, yet produced fruit with fine balance, great concentrations of flavor, and fragrant aromatic qualities, resulting in a spectacular outcome and a truly epic 2008 vintage.
