From start to finish, the 2019 growing season proved to be a Napa Valley classic, reminiscent of the idyllic 2012 vintage. Abundant moisture early in the season acted as the perfect precursor to the months that would follow. The summer months provided exceptionally high, steady heat during the days, contrasted by classically cool overnight marine air. Gradually cooler fall months, dotted only occasionally by warmer spells, allowed the growing season as a whole to elongate, culminating in a tailor-made harvest. The fruit from this remarkable vintage is deeply layered and complex, with vibrant acidity playing perfectly against a lush, velvety texture.
