Anniversary Offering Vintage Notes

We’ve been fortunate to have developed a wonderful following over the past twenty years. Many of you have been with us since the beginning, while some are more recent friends but we are equally grateful for your support. To help celebrate our anniversary, we’ve set aside some special wines in preparation for a unique offering. They are a product of our restless enthusiasm for quality in both vineyard and cellar and we’re delighted to be able to finally share them. These are wines we’ve been saving for this occasion – and we felt that the fairest way to share was to offer them on a first come basis so that everyone had a chance to enjoy. This is not a guaranteed allocation like our normal offerings and your participation will not affect your list status in any way.

Quite simply, 2013 offered us truly wonderful conditions and allowed each vineyard to shine despite the recent statewide drought.

Post-card growing season helped nurture a good crop of brilliant quality. A welcome respite from more difficult years.

An ideal, if early, vintage with consistent weather and temperatures throughout the season.

A cool spring was tempered by a hot July but overall, a cooler and more elegant year.

Marked by cool weather that allowed fruit to mature gracefully. A sleek vintage.

Excellent year. Slightly earlier harvest due to warmer temperatures.
