Other Notes
The 2016 vintage began with below average rainfall as the Paso Robles area continues to be effected by drought. The dry start was followed by above average warm temperatures that lasted through June, at which point temperatures became more moderate. The early warm weather accelerated fruit development and allowed for an improved fruit set compared to the 2015 vintage. While harvest came early to many in Paso Robles, the mild temperatures extended our growing season improving overall grape quality. Temperatures remained seasonal until above average rainfall in late October concluded our harvest. Overall, we experienced a busy harvest season with prime conditions for ripening. The 2016 vintage has excellent depth of color and wonderful flavor maturity.
