Vintage 2018 was interesting, challenging, and ultimately rewarding. Lots of humidity in spring made for difficult conditions in the vineyard, some farms losing all of their fruit. It was of great benefit to be spraying my own vines, quick response to heavy weather got us through unscathed. When the summer turned dry, it was really dry, which was for the best this year. And after a few hot days in early January the rest of the summer was reasonably mild. A strange combination of odd weather has resulted in some very concentrated wines. By comparison slightly bigger wines than the elegant 2017 vintage.
