We have always claimed that vintage variation in wines due to differences in the weather is a good thing. Otherwise, the wines would tend to be too similar from year to year. 2019 is a good example. Despite the warming trend due to climate change, 2019 was a relatively cool year in the vineyards. The earlier freezing temperatures halted photosynthesis and stopped the ripening process earlier than usual. Consequently, the wines are focused, refreshing, and pure with brighter flavors from the higher acid, and lower alcohol due to less sugar.
2019 is also noteworthy because it is a good example of the importance of blending to our winemaking process. We have four cabernet wines even though almost all the grapes came from the same Red Mt. appellation. We believe that creating four different blends from those barrels produced wines with the best combination of flavors, texture, structure, and balance. Many tasting trials were required to solve the puzzle of which barrels to blend together.
Because we have reduced production to stay in the game during our senior years, this will be the last vintage of our Artist Series wine. Fortunately, it is one of our favorites because of the plush texture and superb balance.
