Growing Conditions

“A blockbuster vintage, 2018 yielded some of the most concentrated, highly structured wines we’ve seen over the past decade. Early bud break and moderately warm days combined with cool nights created ideal conditions for a balanced,
harmonious vintage. A brief rain event in late September followed by dry, mild conditions in October allowed grapes to hang and develop complex flavors on the vine while retaining fresh acidity. Mild conditions in the fall rewarded winemakers with nearly perfect numbers for sugar, pH, and acidity.“ — Executive Winemaker, Don Lange
