Winemaking

Vintage Notes: 

The 2013 vintage across Monterey was an ideal growing season with the perfect conditions for bloom and fruit set. A dry winter led to a mild spring and cool summer. The extra summer fog and cloud cover allowed for an extended growing season resulting in excellent flavor concentration, good acidity, and structure.
