Vineyard-Sourced from two vineyards in central Russian River Valley, Fidelis and Bazzano vineyard. Both sites are on benchland exposures, the Bazzano is an older vineyard on a shallow slope while Fidelis is still a teenager but planted on a steep South/western exposure. Both sites are planted to UCD clone
Vintage-The 2018 vintage offered excellent growing conditions. A mild winter followed by an early spring started the year off early. Sonoma County did not suffer any heat waves (or fires) this summer so the ripening was slow and steady. We picked much later this year as mild days continued into September. This vintage will be characterized by good acidities and lower alcohols.
