2013 Pinot Noir Farmstead
2013 was a superb vintage. Warm days coupled with the cooling effect of the early morning marine layer off the pacific, allowed for an ideal season for Pinot Noir. The unusually long season, moderate temperatures without a major heat spike, and lack of rains made for one of the best vintages in recent memory. An early spring bud break allowed our vineyards to get a two-week head start on the vintage, and the lack of frost meant that yields were excellent while the longer growing season allowed for full ripeness.
