2016 was a near-perfect growing season thanks to ideal weather conditions, giving Napa Valley another winner in a string of historic vintages. Spring budbreak came early due to dry and warm soils from a drought winter. Minimal heat spells and cool nights across the summer months allowed the clusters to ripen slowly and evenly while protecting their vitally important natural acidity. The friendly weather also allowed us to begin harvesting Cabernet in August. 2016 produced a very clean, concentrated crop. The Napa reds will almost certainly be able to rival the best vintages of the last decade.
2018 was a dream growing season and harvest for Napa Valley. An abundance of rain in February was followed by continuous days of sunshine and mild temperature that made for a uniform vines and even cluster growth. With no major heat spikes to contend with, there was no need to rush through harvest. Cooler temperatures allowed us to pick when we wanted, without stress and under optimal conditions. The gift from Mother Nature translated to wines that not only have great concentration but also amazing freshness.
In 2017, the vines encountered early heat prior to the berries going through veraison. We usually see natural acidity maintained in white grapes as ripening often happens before the hottest days occur late in season. Aided by naturally thicker skins and the implementation of shade cloth in the vineyard, the early heat events basically left us unaffected. Patience was required as vines tend to slow down at higher temperatures extending the berries’ phenolic ripening.
