A perfect ripening season with full crop yields and restrained sugar levels led to outstanding wines from Washington state’s vineyards in 2008.

Harvest began 10 days later than normal due to cool spring weather and a moderate summer.

Hot weather in August provided ideal ripening conditions for grapes across all varietals and harvest was quickly ramped up in order to obtain fruit at the optimum ripeness.
