Winemaker's Notes:

Harvest Notes The development of Botrytis was earlier and more prevalent this year than one could have hoped for. As is often the case, the variable that we cannot control proved to be the crucial factor: the weather. The onset and development of Botrytis began with a half-inch of rain that fell during a spectacular electrical storm on September 25, 2001, and was fueled by two weeks of warm and dry weather conditions. The Botrytis-induced concentration of grape sugar and flavor rapidly occurred in mid-October during a brief two-day period of ninety-plus-degree weather and extremely low humidity. We couldn’t pick the fruit fast enough! After the rain-drenched harvest of ’00, this vintage will be fondly remembered for years to come.
