Vintage Notes

The 2009 growing season presented us with good winter and spring rains. The warm days and cool nights
leading up to harvest provided us with near perfect conditions. As a result, the 2009 wines have wonderful finesse and brightness. Not cloying and over ripe they display remarkable richness and vibrance that will see them drinking well for the next 2-5 years.
