Vintage

We in the Napa Valley have delighted in a string of exceptional vintages in recent years. Starting in 2012 and continuing through 2015, each has provided near ideal conditions for ripening fruit perfectly. The crop in 2015 was substantially lighter than in the previous 3 vintages and produced wines of great intensity. At critical periods, temperatures remained cool enough to stretch the harvest out for over two weeks, allowing for good flavor development without dehydration of the fruit.
