The 2013 vintage gave us near perfect growing conditions and an early harvest. Spring conditions were warm and dry, which led to an early bud break and very even set. Aside from one hot spell at the end of June, temperatures remained moderate throughout the spring and summer. With only eight inches of rain from January through June, the vines had less green growth and an earlier turn to fruit development. Early October saw a major north wind event, bringing dry air off the arid northern California interior down across the coastal areas. Humidity during October 3-7 was very low, with strong winds buffeting all parts of Napa. Thirsty vineyards prompted harvest to accelerate even more than usual. In seven days, we brought in about 24% of our fruit. The first Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville was harvested off a young block on September 13 with the last of the Cabernet Sauvignon hitting the hopper on October 22. As harvest progressed, we became more and more aware that the color and intensity of Bordeaux reds would lead to a truly phenomenal vintage.
