The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Enjoyed Nice Weather
Flowering began in early May, which is typical timing, and despite some rainy days and a little wind, the flowers pollinated successfully in our earlier-ripening vineyards. A curve ball came our way from mid-May through Memorial Day weekend, in the form of a few rain showers punctuated by two heat spikes. This disrupted the bloom of some later-ripening vineyards, which reduced the quantity—but not the quality—of the grape clusters. The good news is that many of the Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon grower vineyards had already bloomed 75-100 percent before the inclement weather arrived.
Over my 15 years as a winemaker, I’ve always followed the principle that you need balanced vines to make balanced wines, and 2016 is one of those ideal vintages where the grapevines grew in harmony from spring and summer to fall. The pursuit of vine balance begins at the end of winter when grapevines awaken from dormancy and burst their tiny buds. If the buds break uniformly—i.e. in balance—they will, in theory, go through flowering evenly (as long as there isn’t rain and wind during bloom), resulting in balanced, tiny berries. During summer months, fruit set andveraison，红葡萄的颜色变化，也将均匀平衡，只要不怪天气事件，如热尖峰或暴雨，发生发生。得益于葡萄的生命周期中在这些重要的时间风调雨顺年，2016年约旦赤霞珠葡萄是如此均匀成熟，他们拥有更新鲜，比2015年的黑色水果字符。188金宝傅官网
Intense heat (temperatures in the mid-90s to 100) can cause the vines to shut down and not ripen their fruit. Fortunately, the 2016 vintage had ideal summer weather with no heat spikes whatsoever. Cool temperatures and misty fog lingered well into late morning most days throughout August, and highs stayed in the upper 70s and low 80s—about 10 degrees below average. There was just enough sunshine, but without intense heat, which allowed the grapes to ripen slowly, developing complex flavors.
