Production Notes
2019 began with a warm, wet spring and bud break commenced on schedule in April. A cool spell of weather in June around bloom naturally modulated fruit set, lowering yields. The late spring and summer were warmer than average but lacked notable heat spikes, allowing for steady vine growth and development during the growing season through véraison, which took place in mid-August. A cooling trend starting in early September slowed ripening at the final moments, allowing for additional hang time and flavor development while keeping the fruit in perfect balance until harvest began in mid-September. The 2019 wines are marked by vibrant fruit flavors, ageworthy structure, and food-friendly acidity.
Winemaker Notes
Handpicked fruit was destemmed and carefully fermented in small lots. The wine was aged nine months in mixed French cooperage (5% Once-filled, 95% neutral)
