Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

Harvest 2015 was one of our earliest years on record. The persistent California drought and a cool spring during bloom lead to low yields in the vineyard and an early bud break. Careful irrigation and canopy management were key, and allowed our growers to maximize quality and create beautifully ripe and balanced fruit. The wines resulting from the 2015 vintage are some of our favorite to date.
