Another very disappointing year
A very poor vintage indeed, despite ideal weather in late spring, continuing on through early summer. While the end of July was hot, variable conditions followed. Hail fell at the beginning of August and storms followed, lasting well into early September. Despite a return to cooler, drier weather, much of the crop suffered from rot.
A bad vintage: the red wines largely produced from rotten grapes. Long over the hill. Ignore.
