The growing season started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring, triggering early bud break. Colder temperatures in May slowed grape development, which coupled with the fourth year of drought, resulted in a much smaller crop in 2015. The harvest was one of our earliest in memory, starting on August 21st, with the berries smaller, but packed with flavor and color.
