The vintage presented us with half the average rainfall, therefore irrigation was supplemented in January and February so the vines would awaken to a full soil moisture prole. March gave us our last winter storm and by the end of the month, all blocks had signs of bud break. The early Spring weather was cooler than normal, with periods where the marine layer would leave heavy dew on the leaves and flowers. During this cool-weather pattern, the vines had undergone multiple stages of fruit development. Summer was followed by mellow temperatures, allowing the fruit to mature slowly develop complex flavors, color, and depth.
