Brothers

The 2011 vintage started off cool and damp at Brothers Ridge, but with little to no frost. With almost two inches of rain in the month of June, late rains continued until July, which generated a larger than normal canopy that required careful management. The end of the rainy season led to a cool weather pattern for most of the summer, with average-high temperatures around 80 degrees for both July and August. The heat finally returned in September, with one six day stretch of temperatures in the 90s, exactly what the vintage needed. We harvested the majority of this vintage’s blend from block 1, the “greenstone” block, on October 15th and 19th, sandwiching a picking of block 8 in between on the 18th. Average brix at harvest for all blocks was 24.6 degrees.
