Vintage Notes Lots of late winter rain delayed bud break, but May rains reduced crop, leading to an early harvest. Heat waves at the end of July and the end of August kept growers and winemakers on their toes. Sunburn and overripe fruit were a threat, but winemakers spent much time in the vineyard to ensure a timely and selective harvest.
