In the vineyard

Despite a late frost our fruit survived.  Then the spring and summer months came along to help ripen and bring life to the fruit that survived.  The Roussanne and Viognier were able to come in fully ripened and full of flavor.  The balance of flavor and acidity throughout this wine is very enticing.
