Winemaker Rob Hunter Notes
Vale Loam alluvial soil. Deep, rich topsoil with an underlayer of rock. The stressed 20-year-old hillside vines yield ultra-rich, concentrated fruit. Overall, this vintage shows the austerity of vineyard conditions. In 2005, vines started growing a month earlier than normal. Winter and spring rains also minimized stress, leading to larger, healthier canopies. Harvest occurred later than usual because of a cool summer and a mild fall.
