1994

Spring arrived early in 1994, with warmth and rain getting the vines off to an early start. The summer was immensely problematic with record high temperatures accompanied by near drought conditions that caused many vines to simply shut down and wait for better conditions to return. Once it did cool down, the vines revived and were rewarded with several weeks of unrelenting rainfall.  The harvest took place a bit late under clear, warm skies, but no Indian summer could save this anomaly of a vintage. With ripe fruit diluted by rains and lower than average acidity due to the blistering heat of the summer, the wines never amounted to much and are best forgotten. Some producers did manage to produce solid small-scaled wines.
