A very challenging harvest in terms of weather. Hampered by rain and cold weather during bloom, fruit-fullness on the vines was well below average. Post bloom, we had perfect warm weather. Both these factors lead to an earlier than normal harvest for Cabernet Sauvignon as well as all other varietals. Berries and clusters were very small leading to harvest.
