The 2015 vintage will be remembered as one of the coolest growing seasons on record in Northern California. This cool weather during
bloom caused the vines to set a light crop and continuing through the growing season slowed the ripening of the grapes. The combination of a light crop and extra hang time on the vines produced fruit of excellent concentration and character.
