Vintage 2017, a belated summary


Yep, I'm writing this after the 2018 vintage is finished. Better late than never I guess.

Vintage 2017 was the first year of formally leasing the winery, pic below, not a bad place to work. The winemaking work was relatively straightforward in 2017. The weather was near perfect, the crops were moderate, and the fruit all arrived at well spaced intervals. If only it were always that easy.

Beautiful wines have followed, elegant Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, full of life. The Harriet's Vineyard wines are particularly well balanced. The Cabernets are again made in a fleshy generous style that needs no cellaring.
