Each vintage presents us with new challenges and exciting opportunities to make wine from our esteemed vineyard sources.  While we usually have a general plan of attack, we try to avoid any dogmatic approach to winemaking, preferring game time decisions over historical tendencies and letting instinct be our guide.
