2010 Vintage

The cool, late 2010 growing season gave our red Bordeaux varieties bright and pure varietal character. If history is a guide, we expect the wines to be long-lived and more Bordeaux-like than Californian in profile. The Spring Mountain Vineyard experienced a third year of very low yields. The red Bordeaux varieties that comprise the Elivette and Cabernet Sauvignon labels averaged about 1 ton per acre. Normal yield is approximately 1.5 to 2 tons per acre.
