2018 was a great year in Russian River Valley, moderate temperatures yielded a long and even growing season leaving the farmers to a relaxing harvest.

Rain in early October was followed by a dry spell allowing the grapes to mature a few additional weeks leading to a later-than-normal harvest. Grapes of this vintage showcase depth, balanced flavors and outstanding color.
