About The 2019 Vintage
The start of the 2019 growing season was defined by copious rainfall and late soil moisture. The long, warm summer with many foggy mornings set the stage for vibrant and expressive wines. The mild finish to the season helped to preserve freshness and fitness in the fruit with abundant hang time resulting in great color, structure and soft tannins.
