The Story

The 2016 vintage started early and warm but ended up beautifully for Eco Terreno, especially for our later ripening red grapes. As always cool fog in the morning clearing to sunny skies by early afternoon with temperatures soaring up into the high 90°s F and the quickly cooling off following sunset. Temperature swings of up to 40° F, which is preferable for Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot allowed for greater depth of flavor.
