VINTAGE INFORMATION: The vintage began quite dry, with just enough rain arriving in late winter and early spring to add some much-needed moisture to the soil depths. Aside from hot conditions during spring, the growing season progressed quite well. Most varieties will have stand out examples, either due to a reduction in yield or the ideal conditions at the end of the season. 2018 overall is a terrific vintage with its most important varieties coming out on top.
