Vintage

Throughout the spring and summer months of 2009 we experienced relatively mild weather. A heavy rainstorm in October caused some concern, but fortunately the Cabernet clusters were loosely packed and once the rain cleared, we were able to harvest a healthy crop of clean fruit. Since there were no real heat spikes during the growing season, the grapes possessed phenolic maturity and ripeness without excessive sugar.
