Sokol Blosser Pinot Noir

Vintage summary: this was a great vintage. Period. I will most likely never see another vintage like this in my life time. Winemaker alex sokol blosser. The driest summer on record made for clean fruit possibly the cleanest ever seen in our vineyard. Growing and harvest conditions were optimal and near perfect; the drying east winds in early october did force us to pick sooner than anticipated due to the grape drying. Color intensity and flavor will be the hallmarks from the vintage. January february and march produced significant rainfall more than six inches above average. Winter was cool as well with two inches of snow in january and a trace in march. April may and june continued the cool and above average rainfall (more than four inches above normal). With so much rain we had to wait to get the tractors into the field. Bud break started on april 23rd right on time. Bloom started june 17th which is again right on time. The wet weather at bloom helped thin the crop.
