An easy to use vintage by vintage guide

2006

2006 began much as 2005, with a cool, damp spring that slowed the onset of the vines vegetative cycle. The summer arrived with a vengeance though and both June and July saw very hot, dry conditions. August saw a return to cooler temperatures as well as much needed rain, allowing the vines to complete the maturation of the grapes while preserving the fresh quality of the fruit. In fact, throughout the late summer and early fall, temperatures were ideal with warm days and cool nights. Quality and quantity were both high in 2006 and the wines possesses richness and good structural elements that seem to promise wines that will drink well throughout their lives.
