Vintage Notes

Until the very end, 2002 was a mild season with few hot spells. It started with frost in April, and rains in May. After veraison (the coloring of the fruit), warm days and cool nights accelerated ripening. By September, the real heat kicked in, leading to a compressed harvest which began two weeks later than the previous year. Intense flavors, husky structure, and excellent balance were the happy result of the cool summer, and richness, the outcome of warm picking weather.
