The 2011 Vintage began after a fairly dry winter followed upon by a dry spring. Some relief arrived in January with some light rains. This was followed in February and March by extremely hot summer days, with quite unusually warm summer nights, speeding up the growing season.

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon has a richer flavor, coupled with super ripe tannins.
