SONOMA Current Temperature
The Sonoma County 2018 vintage is considered exceptional by Sonoma winegrowers. It had a cooler start, prolonged moderate temperatures and longer growing season, with harvest starting after Labor Day. A perfect fruit set by Spring with larger grape clusters allowed for reduced fruit ripening on the vine and good yields of superior quality fruit. 2018 releases show fully-mature, sweet tannins, outstanding color and brightness, depth of fruit, and naturally beautifully balanced wines.
