The 2015 Vintage

The 2015 growing season is the latest in a trend of being the warmest on record for our valley. The last week of June had the highest temperatures we’ve seen! The record-breaking heat gave way to cooler days and nights around veraison, allowing the fruit to develop perfectly. The last week of August brought harvest: our earliest ever. Wines of this vintage are richly structured, showcasing ripe fruit and floral characteristics.
