Vintage Notes

2019 was the first time that California has been 100% drought-free since 2011. Winter and spring rains provided sufficient water in the soil through midsummer, with irrigation not starting until July. The vintage provided us with a mild growing season, and an average crop, in terms of quantity. Quality, however, remained outstanding.

Viticulture

Russian River Valley
The climate of the Russian River Valley is greatly influenced by fog that rolls in each evening from the nearby Pacific Ocean. This
marine layer cools the vineyards down from their daytime temperature by as much as 35 to 40 degrees, creating conditions that allow
the grapes to ripen slowly and retain their natural acidity for better balance.

Vinification

barrel regimen : Barrel fermented in French oak, and aged 10 months
