The warmer average temperatures of the Pacific Ocean/Monterey Bay 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.  One of the last grapes to be harvested, after it achieved the perfect level of ripeness and skin color.
