2007 Vintage Notes

Mild weather at the beginning of the year gave vines a gentle and measured start. This pattern continued through the growing season which meant that our vineyards ripened at a steady pace. This allowed us to bring in our first harvest at our own dedicated winery with little fuss and drama. The colors, flavors and mouthfeel of these wines reflected that long and even season.

Vintages

2017 Fall Release

2015

Another vintage to make us all smile.

2014

Epic vintage. Near perfect conditions with yields to match.

2013

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

2012

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

2011

A challenging vintage but one we relished. Cool and wet spring followed by late rains during harvest caused some concern.

2010

Temperature extremes pushed us and our vineyards but the efforts paid off with resulting high quality.

2009

A joy of a vintage with near perfect growing conditions throughout the year.

2008

A difficult year - with frost, heat and drought all making an appearance.

2007

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

2006

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

2005

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

2004

Excellent year. Slightly earlier harvest due to warmer temperatures.
