Pressed Out

After an extremely stressful 2015 harvest, it's finally time to relax.  This year proved particularly difficult due to a combination of elemental factors.  First it was too hot, then it was too cool, then the fires came - all the while hurting for water.  While none of these wrinkles proved insurmountable, the combination served to stifle our yield significantly.

Traditionally, one could look at a look at a low yield and predict certain desirable traits in the final product - after all, drought stressed grapes are more flavorful with more pronounced notes - this year may buck that trend.

While the growing season is over for us, the winemaking has just begun.  Keep an eye out for more updates as time goes by.

Cheers!
