Production Notes

February saw abundant rains, followed by lots of filtered light in spring and early summer. Both bud break and flowering occurred a bit late, but under ideal weather conditions, creating a plentiful and even fruit set. Summer brought generous sun during the day and cooler marine influences, virtually uninterrupted by major heat spikes. The relatively mild summer was followed by extended fall sunshine and moderate heat, which created near-ideal conditions for winemakers to allow their fruit to accumulate flavor complexity with gradual increases in sugar levels.

Vineyard Notes

100% Oakville Station. All of our wines come from our own vineyards except for this historic site on the western edge of the Oakville appellation. First planted to vines in 1883, this research station has played a key role in advancing the quality of California's grape growing. It is now under the guidance of the University of California, Davis. We are pleased that working with the university has given us the opportunity to craft this limited bottling.
