NOTES It rained hard and long throughout the spring of 2018. It was still cold and wet in May! Budbreak was thusly delayed, but at once the rain stopped and the plants flowered (prodigiously) and set a record-size crop. The summer of 2018 was remarkably cool, absent those pesky high-pressure heat events we saw in 2017. And it continued into the fall--dry, cool, sunny weather. We found ourselves picking vineyards 3-4 weeks later than we had the previous year, resulting in wines with brilliant acidic structure, ripe tannins, and bursting with flavor. There are notes in this wine not seen since 2011--things like green herbs and night-blooming jasmine flowers. It's been said around Sonoma County water coolers that 2018 could be the vintage of our careers as vintners…
