Vintage Notes

The 2009 vintage was an excellent year with none of the stress of the previous
harvest. The growing season offered mild, steady weather, resulting in bright
fruit with pure varietal character and ripeness without excessive sugar. Even
thought there were heavy storms during harvest season, the grapes were
unaffected by the rain
