Growing Conditions

2012 marked a nearly ideal growing season. The fruit developed slowly over a very mild summer lacking in heat spikes. Harvest occurred in mid October with fully ripened tannins and terrific color without excessive sugars. Unlike many vineyards in
Napa Valley , the 12 crop was of normal size due to our rocky soils and farming practice.
