The 2017 growing season started later than anticipated due to a cool, wet spring; but a record-breaking dry spell followed in July and August with temperatures above seasonal norms. The late start resulted in a lower yield than expected but that reduced yield, along with a warm, dry summer, resulted in small, concentrated berries that produced wines of exceptional depth and intensity.
