Production Notes
The 2010 vintage was unseasonably cool from March to July. Bloom and fruit set took longer than normal, but in the end yields were good. We had rainfall early in the season giving the vines the necessary moisture to carry them to harvest. The intense heat of summer came late, but when it arrived the vines responded accordingly. As a result, the wines from this vintage display concentrated fruit characteristics coupled with extraordinary balance.
