Notes from Justin Smith, winemaker - "The 2008 vintage..... I have to compare it to 2007, very little winter rainfall like ‘07, and a fairly moderate growing season. A little more fluctuation in temperature, with some small heat spells, but nothing like ‘03 or ‘04. Very little crop set, less even than 2007, so there was a lot of concentration like the ‘07s. We were able to dry farm our vines despite the drought, thanks to our great soils and deep rooted vines. I’d have to say the biggest difference is the tannins. In the ‘08s the tannins are chunkier, not quite as velvety as the ‘07s. Some have said the ‘08s will mature earlier than the ‘07s, but I’m not so sure, I think the tannin levels are similar, and I think they will have similarly long gorgeous lives"
