Vintage Notes

A near perfect growing season in 2016 ensured that our harvest was of extremely high quality. Benefiting from early bud break and plenty of spring rain, we saw early growth of the young canopy. As the temperatures started to rise the rain events became less frequent, the vines flowered and we moved into bloom with optimum conditions, helping promote a successful and abundant fruit set. The drought conditions of the previous years were starting to recede as we maintained a full soil moisture profile for much of the early growing season in all our vine- yards. As we moved into veraison - the period where the small green berries start to develop color, gain sugar and loose their acidity - we began to see the true potential that 2016 was offering. It was fortunate that the rains held off until mid-October, as we were able to harvest our vineyards at precisely the right time, optimizing fruit flavor intensity whilst retaining the natural bright balanced acidity of the grape.

Viticulture

Tenma vineyard, on an alluvial fan in Jericho Canyon in northeastern Calistoga, produces Cabernet Sauvignon wines of deep color and intensity. The rocky terrain here is well-drained with a very sparse topsoil, which is a perfect combination for growing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon when combined with the climate of Napa Valley.
