It was another mild winter in Northern California, yet the extreme coastal regions received significant rainfalls in the latter part of winter and early spring of 2014. This precipitation fully saturated our estate soils and provided enough moisture to support our vineyards through the growing season. Signs of budbreak first showed in early March and the onset of flowering around the late week of April. Summer was moderate, dominated by cool, sunny days with omnipresent fog just offshore. The onset of veraison was fairly widespread by the third week of July, and the continuation of moderate and sunny weather interspersed with cool fog prevailed through the end of the growing season, allowing us to bring in pinot noir of exceptional depth of flavor and finesse.
