2016 was one of the earliest and longest growing seasons on record. April and May were warm and dry with temperatures hitting above 100 by early June. Grapes started rolling in by mid-August and there were still pickers out in the fields well into November. This long season allowed grapes to ripen slowly and steadily. Cool temperatures arrived midsummer and continued through harvest which helped preserve freshness and balance in the resulting wines.
