Vineyard Notes

2016 was a warm vintage in Washington State. The high heat units pushed forward harvest and many white grapes were picked in late August, a week or two ahead of average. In the spring, we had lots of wet weather that helped with the early season growth. The sun was out and shining through Summer, but temperatures never got over 100 degrees. There was some smoke in the air but instead of causing problems it helped mitigate some of the heat. The steady warm season was very consistent, without extreme highs the grapes ripened without being stressed. It was a great vintage. 

Winemaker Notes

I love getting to make all the different varietals we grow at the vineyard. We have been making a little Cab Franc each year for blending and this year we had enough to showcase this on its own. I’m still figuring out how to best express this grape on its own. The vineyard naturally produces fruity rich fruit which makes things a little easier on my end. I love the lighter side to this varietal. It has a lot of complexity.
