2018 Harvest Recap

We're overdue reporting on harvest 2018 -- it was lovely.  The previous year had some terrifying moments -- not just the fires, but also the "heat event" on September 1 when it became crazy hot for a few hours -- among other things, resulting in our redirecting all of the Petit Verdot into a rosé.  2018 had none of that -- a calm, long harvest, with lots of time for decisions.  Many people are talking about it being a large crop, which is true -- overall yields were above average -- but the story varies by block.  The block for our Brothers Vineyard Cabernet actually came in below '17.  So far, we like what we're tasting in barrel -- time will tell.
