“Tasting the young reds and whites from 2019s is a real treat. They are vibrant, sleek, fruit-filled yet focused, and anticipation of what the more important, later-released wines will bring to the table is very high. The weather cooled down through September and the first half of October, accompanied by timely precipitation, keeping harvest on track; and with a slight rise in temperatures and dry conditions at the end of October, even the late-harvested varieties reached peak ripeness.” Eric Guido, Vinous Media
