The 2017 vintage came as a relief as it was the first after years of draught. Rain in the yearly part of the year replenished soils. This along with the cool-climate ensured these grapes were not impacted by heat spikes that affected other areas of the state as Harvest approached. These grapes ripened and were picked with high acidity and impressive aromatic intensity in early September.ine
