Cabernet Sauvignon–Bordeaux Blend

Notes

2017 growing season started off with an abundance of rain. More rain than we had had in many years. We had a cool Spring and that delayed bud break and bloom. We caught up with higher than usual temperatures in May, followed by two long heat spikes in June, which is unusual for both early timing and duration.  In August, the grapes enjoyed moderate heat during the day and cool nights, ideal for flavor development. But over Labor Day weekend, a string of 100+ degree days turned the vintage into a bit of a sprint for many vintners. For us, there was time. We watered. We watched. We waited. Temperatures moderated and the grapes benefited from the extra hang time, reaching full maturity by month end. We were fortunate to have our grapes in the winery before the October fires.

We are incredibly grateful and delighted to share our 2017 Poggi Twin Palms with you. It reflects our well-judged decisions of our winemaker and is a testament to the resiliene and hardiness of grapevines during extreme weather events.
