2015 began with warm weather conditions in the winter that continued throughout spring and summer. Yet, light scattered showers in late August and a return to normalcy in September gave a break to what was an intense growing season. We had pristinely clean fruit, bountiful yields, moderate to high alcohols, lower acids and no rain - a twin to 2014 in many ways.Â The result was concentrated, balanced fruit throughout the state.

After two vintages with some of the coolest temperatures on record, 2014 presented us with warm, consistent weather. The dry summer produced fruit of a rich full character in a perfect tension with acidity. The heat units allowed ever so slightly higher alcohol levels. This vintage rivals the 09' Pinot's which are some of the best we've made to date.
There's nothing like a White Christmas, but here on the Central Coast we rarely get snow. So, we drink win instead! This 3 pack has the perfect wine spectrum ranging from a crisp, stainless-steal Sauvignon Blanc to a floral and fruity Viognier to the light, smooth and creamy Chardonnay.
The 2012 vintage tracked as a wonderful year across all Washington state AVAs and was significantly warmer than the previous two years. The vintage was consistent in ripening without dramatic heat spikes which can cause undue stress on berry development. Color developed earlier in the growing season allowing for full tannins to mature in the reds as well as moderate alcohols and balanced acidity in both the whites and reds.
