Winemaker Notes
2016 is a year that has come back to surprise many of us. The growing season was fine, fairly unremarkable. Harvest was smooth and spread out, with no hurricane pressure at the end of the season. The wines at the time didn’t really stand out . However, the wines now are expressing themselves beautifully 8 years into aging and still have time to go.
