2011 was a vintage that required patience,adaptation and know how. We experienced 1/3 more rainfall than usual that lasted into June followed by a very cool summer. The effect was a slow growing season that ended in one of the latest harvests on record, a harvest that was marked by rain at the peak of the harvest season and resulting in the classic characteristics Cabernet Sauvignon is known for the world over.
