The 2017 vintage was excellent in the Willamette Valley, in spite of a very hot summer and the worrisome threat of wildfires. We brought in superbly ripe fruit, the harvest itself was less frenzied than in most years, and the wines have turned out beautifully–well balanced and finely structured. Because of the warm summer and rapid vine development, we thought we were in for another very early harvest. Fortunately, cooler weather and a bit of cleansing rain came to us in September. After the fast start in summer, this respite gave the fruit time to finish ripening at a much slower pace, while retaining freshening acidity.
