Scribe's Estate vineyard on the southwest-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain. Neustadt 90 Clone and Clone 110 are planted on St. George rootstock in volcanic tuff and the local Huichica Loam soil.
2019 meteorological data: Northern California experienced another cool and wet winter which kept the vines dormant through late March/Early April. The springtime brought a mix of heat spells followed by cool and wet weather. Our initial predictions were for a later harvest, but the warm summer months hastened the growing cycle of the vines. Harvest started for us August 14th with Rose of Pinot noir and ended with our Atlas West Cabernet Sauvignon in mid-October.
soil type: Huichica loam, volcanic tuff
