Production Notes

The vintage of 2015 was characterized by low yields and high
quality. The winter of 2014-2015 brought some temporary
relief from the drought; however, the winter rains ended by
February leaving us to start the season with lower than average
rainfall totals. The lack of rain was followed by some cooler
than normal weather during berry set which lead to the low
yields. The remainder of the growing season was long, cooler
than average and then culminated in a warm fall which led to
an early finish to harvest. The fourth year of drought and the
low yields contribute to the vibrancy of fruit and high-quality
tannins of the Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon from
2015.
