THE VINTAGE “Winter precipitation was above the 1991-2021 average by about 10%. April came on with great promise, then, the middle of the month turned cold, leading up to an unprecedented freeze that impacted some primary buds. Our spring and early summer continued to be quite cool (at around 2.2º below average) with rain events persisting into early June. As we moved into summer, the season came on strong, hot and dry, with temperatures running almost 6º above normal from August through October. This was the point at which our abundant winter rains came into play, allowing the canopy to stay green well into the fall. Warm, dry conditions in October gave us the latitude to ripen all the fruit that had gotten off to a late start. Our last pick on October 21st ended just before the autumn rains commenced.
The yields across all vineyards, which were projected to be 30% of normal, ended up in the normal range. Early indications point to lovely, classic white wines with ripe fruit character and well-defined acid backbones, while our pinot noirs show high-toned aromatics and rich, concentrated flavors.” — Executive Winemaker, Don Lange
