Winemaker Michael Weis Notes
The 2010 harvest year was punctuated by a direct move from Spring set records in many parts of Northern California. The cool weather we encountered during most of the growing season allowed the grapes to develop slowly resulting in maturity at lower sugars and higher acidities at harvest. Coupled with this balance, the fruitiness of the grape was retained resulting in exceptional aromas and flavors. However, the heat spikes did result in some vineyard issues. Large quantities of grapes, both white and red, were lopped off the vines to keep them from being harvested and brought into the winery. After all the hand wringing that Mother Nature caused during the season, the 2010 harvest may actually go down as one of the most intriguing, most dif ...more... ficult and the best vintages of the early 21st century. The whites are delightful – full flavors and aromas at nice acid levels with lower alcohols. Amazing results from an amazing year!
