2017 Vintage: A wet, cool spring delayed flowering until late June, which set the stage for a later harvest than the previous three vintages. Hot, dry conditions pre- vailed through the summer, yield- ing heat spikes in August. With a larger than normal fruit set, the grapes enjoyed long hang time leading up to harvest. Conditions cooled and brought in scattered rains with the harvest, which be- gan at Brooks on the 28th of Sep- tember and ran through November 1st, almost returning to normal average harvest dates in the Wil- lamette Valley. The wines from the vintage show fresh fruit flavors and lively acidity. In all, it will be remembered as a classic vintage in Oregon!
