Growing Conditions

2013 was a phenomenal growing season in just about every way. A warm, dry spring led to
early bud break, limited canopy vigor and berry size, and created ideal conditions through bloom and
fruit set. An abundance of long sunny days, with only one heat spike in early July, resulted in even
ripening and an early harvest with exceptional flavor development. The 2013 vintage offers very high
quality wines that are striking in their balance and expression.
