Growing Conditions

The 2003 vintage followed an extremely challenging, yet rewarding, growing season. The wettest April on record
and late season, September heat spikes contributed to lower overall yields, but produced a vintage with high quality,
great color concentration and intensity of flavors. A long, cool summer allowed fruit flavors to evolve ahead of
sugar accumulation, and we harvested beautifully mature grapes in the Fall.
