Winemaker Michael Weis Notes
WOW! Mother Nature threw almost everything at us in 2008 except a Summer hail storm! A stingy rainy season was followed by the worst frosts we have seen in over thirty years. Unusual weather patterns during bloom and set wreaked havoc with some varieties, greatly impacting tonnage yields. A few heat spikes were thrown in during the Summer for good measure, followed by a little bit of rain for some icing on the cake. All of this was assuaged somewhat by our typical “Indian Summer” of dry warm weather which allowed the red grapes to gracefully mature on the vines. Oh, I forgot - we had severe forest fires in June! Through all of this the wines are quite lovely. Low yields from smaller grapes and clusters that ripened at lower sugars are p ...more... roviding us with great balance, flavors and aromas. The whites are plump and juicy. Overall, 2008 is another keeper!
