The 2013 growing season provided ideal conditions from start to finish. No frost and a warm, dry spring brought early bud break and even flowering and fruit set. Summer provided warm sunny days and cool nights with only a couple of heat spikes in June. The harvest of 3.6 tons was one of our earliest on September 16, 2013.
Bottled on May 8, 2015.
The wine was aged for 19 months in 100% French oak barrels (44% new)
