The 2018 vintage marked an incredible growing season. Evenly paced rains refreshed our vineyard as it slept during the first months of the year. A few warm days gently awoke it from its slumber in late March. April brought some of our biggest rainfall and set the stage for a luxurious growing season. Temperate weather filled the long summer days as the grapes slowly reached their full fruition. A short heatwave in early September brought on the relatively compressed harvest, starting the second week of October and finishing triumphantly just ten days later.
Poised and eloquent, the 2018 Hexameter overflows with notes of plum, black cherry, violets, pen ink and forest floor, giving way to aromas of cola, boysenberry, molasses and orange blossom. This wine possesses great heft and balance - power and levity that will continue to tell its tale for decades to come.
