The 2018 growing season was nearly ideal. The spring was relatively mild, the summer was hot and dry and then it cooled a bit the second half of August and into September. Harvest commenced in early September and lasted through the end of the month, a relatively long harvest season. Because of the cooler late growing season, the grapes had considerable hangtime to achieve optimal physiological ripeness before picking.
