After a relatively long and rainy winter, the 2019 growing season had a late start. Budbreak came about three weeks behind historical averages, though a moderate heat spell in late April pushed vine growth towards a more typical timeframe. Most of the season, from fruit set to harvest, was defined by dry, temperate weather which allowed for slow and even ripening. Crop yields were lower than average, resulting in pronounced concentration of flavors. We wrapped up the harvest season with a second heat spell in late September and, with everything in balance, harvested August 23 through September 21.
