VINTAGE

Vintage 2013 was excellent, with moderate conditions overall. Good fruit set and large bunches required thinning at veraison to maintain quality. Warm, dry days and cool nights in autumn produced optimum ripeness in Cabernet fruit.

WINEMAKING

This fruit was grown on vines aged between 20 and 50 years. The wine was aged for 15 months in a mix of old and new American and French oak hogsheads.
