A perfect spring and early bud break/veraison coupled with the  typical daytime temperatures and accompanying winds has led to  another incredible harvest for the central coast. The warmer than average temperatures of the Pacific Ocean led to warmer night time temps causing slightly lower than normal acids and earlier ripening. The warm days and cool nights provided for a longer hang time  and ripening period.
