Winemaker's Notes

The 2000 season began with a cool late spring, which delayed flowering and set the stage for a harvest that was three to four weeks later than normal. Cool weather in early September added to our worries, but sunny skies in October were enough to fully ripen all but the very latest vineyards of Cabernet. Merlot and Cabernet Franc, which ripen a week to two weeks earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon, were especially successful in contributing ripe flavors to the blend.
