2011 is a cool vintage in Washington State. Many
vineyards had frost damage during the winter. The summer was cool,
with some vineyards recording their latest harvest on record. The
grapes fully ripened expressing full, rich flavors with moderate acidity
levels and low pHs, a measure of tartness. This combination is unusual
and leads to pleasurable balance and longevity
in the wines.
