Harvest Report 2019
We call this harvest «el Año Mendocino.» the Mendoza year. After a small, cool vintage in 2017, which we refer to as «El Año Bordelés» (the Bordeaux Year) and a small, very cool and rainy 2016: «el Año Bourguignon» (the Burgundian year). we finally got a vintage that is classically Mendozan: dry, cool, sunny and with moderate yields in every region from the lowest to the highest altitudes.

Harvest Report 2019
A warm April at the beginning of Autumn guaranteed a healthy harvest of our cool climate Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon from the highest altitude areas. A high skin/juice ratio that resulted from the small berry size, made for highly concentrated wines with great color. Acidities ran higher than usual due to the cool climate. We expect the 2019 wines to be approachable when young, but also able to age.
