We had one of the coldest Aprils, but then one
of the warmest Mays on record. Bloom began in
late May and conditions were ideal. This, along with
cooler June weather, contributed to above average
berry and cluster sizes in some varietals.
July and August temperatures were warm with
occasional heat spikes. As in recent years there
was smoke in the air at times from distant wildfires but no taint has been noticed. By the second
week of August we cooled off considerably and
ushered in one of the most ideal ripening seasons in
recent history, and we saw near perfect conditions
throughout the rest of harvest. Below average days
in September were followed by cool nights with
large diurnal swings. That’s absolutely ideal. Our
harvest wrapped up on October 15th and the
wines are very well balanced with great fruit
In the 2018 vintage we had the right weather in
the right order. You should make room in your
cellar for some fantastic wines from this vintage.
Big color, big flavors, and balanced tannins. A
harvest to remember, indeed!
