Vintage

It felt more like a normal year in Sonoma County in 2016. After years of drought, the water table got renewed to full capacity by the long winter rains. The season started off a little cool and bud break came a bit early. A very mild summer ensued and ripening was slow and steady. We didn’t get the normal high heat in July and August, which provided for a longer hang times for the grapes. The clusters filled out nicely and the berries grew to normal sizes. Some unseasonably cool temperatures in mid-September put the brakes on harvest, but only temporarily, allowing us to free up some tank space. The yields were down just a bit but the flavors and concentrations are stellar.
