After another unusual dry yet bitterly cold winter, spring showed up with plenty of rain, causing issues during flowering and promoting mold and mildew issues. Low temperatures which followed through April and May helped to prevent major issues with disease, though as temperatures warmed and the rains abated, the vines began to shut down due to hydric stress. The lack of winter water had a deep effect on the season’s crop and while the early prognosis is for very positive, we should wait until the wines arrive to pass judgment.
