The 2013 growing season was early, even, and excellent! The early bud break and consistently moderate temperatures throughout spring and summer resulted in exceptional vine health and optimal ripening. We were able to take our time planning vineyard picks to ensure the highest quality fruit with complex flavors and refined phenolic profiles.
