Scribe's Estate vineyard on the southwest-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain in the southern Mayacamas Volcanic Range. For this bottling we harvested Clone 6 and Washington, planted in volcantic tuff and local Huichica Loam.
2020 meteorological data: A cold winter with average rainfall delayed typical budbreak by a couple of weeks. The dry and warm spring that followed hastened the vines’ growth and a temperate summer provided an ideal condition for the start of veraison. Late summer heat waves prompted an early harvest beginning on August 13th.
soil type: Huichica loam, volcanic tuff
21.1 °Bx | pH 3.44 | TA 6.7 g/L | 12.5% alc.
