Rockaway

At Rockaway, the 2011 vintage started off cool and damp like the rest of the Alexander Valley, but without the threat of 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 most of the Cabernet Sauvignon from block 8 this year, on October 24th, with lesser amounts from blocks 2 and 7. The Malbec was harvested from block 6 on October 17th.
