Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

The 2013 harvest was unbelievable in many ways, coming after an amazing 2012 vintage. The 2013 vintage was even more amazing. The near floods at the end of 2012 set us up nicely to weather the very dry season of 2013. Hardly a drop of rain fell for the entire season. The growth season started earlier, giving us plenty of time to ripen another solid crop. Harvest was a dream. This was the first vintage in a long time where the moderate fall temperatures meant winemakers were truly able to take their time (no rain nor heat spikes) to get in the way of bringing in nearly perfect grapes. Many are confidently saying that this vintage looks to be the vintage of the decade.

Video Tasting Note

These grapes are grown in what Sequoia Grove casually refers to as the Oak Knoll bench. Tucked into the western hills on one of the first estates in Napa Valley, between ancient oak trees and grazing cattle, you'll find these beautifully cared for vines. The fruit was harvested on October 17, 2013 at 27 brix.
