2013 Vintage Notes


"Trust yourself, you will know how to live" — Goethe


"2013 growing season is described as an early, even and excellent vintage. A warm dry Spring brought early bud break with the exception of one heat spike in late June/early July. Temperatures were consistent resulting in notably healthy vines reflecting the quality Napa Valley is known for. Mid-September rains and cooler sunny weather throughout October allowed the final grapes still on the vine to linger longer, developing more phenolic and flavor maturities. In a nutshell, this vintage has given us the extraordinary gift, exceptional promise and potential to exceed expectations – another year that has been described as nearly perfect." - Charles Thomas, Winemaker
