Winemaker's Notes:

After a fairly cool July and August, the fall of 1999 brought a beautiful Indian Summer. Grapes were harvested at optimum maturity in late September. Good, clean, sound fruit was hand picked from Ponzi Estate, Madrona, Aurora, Durant, Linda Vista, Watson, Quail Run and Lemelson Vineyards.
