WINEMAKER'S NOTE
Stagecoach Vineyard, Block (I-3). I-3 is a gently sloping block on an acre on the Southside of Pritchard Hill planted to one of the best Hermitage clones. Yields are extremely low and grape quality is very high.
The 2003 vintage was for the most part, straight forward and typical, as far as crop level, timing of bud break, bloom and harvest. However, it was the wettest April on record and Summer was fairly cool and steady, but sugars and ripeness quickly increased with a few nerve-racking heat spikes in September and October.
