2001 Wines

The 2001 vintage began with moderate vigor from average rainfall and cold temperatures. A warm March led to early budbreak, which allowed a serious frost in mid-April to inflict major damage and dramatically reduce yields by nearly 50%. The summer was hot and sunny, but cool nights preserved the aromatics of the fruit. Low yields (1.5–2.5 tons per acre) produced intense flavors in both reds and whites and chewy, chalky tannins in reds that have allowed the wines to age very well.

The grapes are all off the vines. The days are shorter, with a lower sun angle....on Saturday, we actually got a few sprinkles. Next weekend we're forecast to see measurable precipitation. It's all hopeful for a vineyard (and a region) struggling under three years of drought. Read More »
