Warm and dry, 2013 presented a stellar growing season and was the second in a series of vintages characterized by warm, dry and generally excellent growing conditions. A near-perfect flowering and fruit set in the spring ushered in a summer free of rain, followed by a balanced growing season that extended into the fall. Throughout, we watered only when needed, mindful to use irrigation only to keep the vines in balance and to preserve the integrity of the fruit. Harvest began in late August, when we started bringing abundant grape clusters of extremely high quality to the winery. Although some heat spikes rushed harvest a bit at times, the weather cooperated fully.
