2006 Vintage

The winter of 2006 gave us the wettest weather in Spring Mountain history, and a whopping 70 inches of rainfall. Bud break occurred late, near the third week of April. Warm springtime temperatures allowed rapid shoot growth. Bloom and veraison were delayed, and confirmed a later than normal harvest. Summer temperatures mimicked 2005 with an average June and a hot July. August and September were extremely pleasant with below normal temperatures that slowly ripened clusters. Heat in October brought the fruit to maturity and gave us a stellar vintage. Harvest was completed on November 8th.
