The 2017 growing season started with record-setting rainfalls. As flowering started, an unusual heat spikes made for an eclectic mix of conditions. Extreme heat beginning in April provided hints at what would become another record-breaking year of temperatures throughout the growing season. This was followed by a significant cooling trend which allowed for added hang time, leading to increased flavor development. However in October the wildfire started but nearly all of our lots had already been harvested. We are pleased with the excellent flavor development and acidity from this excellent vintage!
