The 2021 growing season will be remembered for low rainfall and for low yields off the vine. The low yields led to intense, concentrated berry flavors that are pronounced. The lack of rainfall resulted in an early harvest for Rutherford Ranch beginning August 6th, a week earlier than 2020 and twenty days earlier than 2019. Sauvignon Blanc from our Estate Heidi Ranch was the first fruit to be received into the winery. The rest of the season went smoothly and ended on October 20th, just in time to miss a massive storm that dropped nine inches of rain onto the valley.
