Calm Before The Storm
In August 1990, Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, and President George H.W. Bush’s press secretary started a diary. That compilation of private notes, memos, and briefings from the Persian Gulf Crisis to the resulting Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm serve as the backdrop of a story that is as much about presidential leadership and American principles as it is about those pivotal moments in history.

This special bottling commemorates the 26th anniversary of Desert Storm. 100% of the proceeds will go directly toward the construction on the National Desert Storm and Desert Shield Memorial in Washington, D.C. Drink in good health!

Vintage Overview
Warm and temperate spring weather prompted an early bud break as well as perfect weather for ideal fruit set, thereby producing larger, luscious clusters with lots of berries. The consistently dry weather and summer sun beautifully ripened the fruit until the end of August when a cold front came in and slowed down the sugar accumulation of the fruit and assumed trajectory of our harvest. Consequently, we were able to bring in the fruit as the flavors presented themselves. As a result, the wines are concentrated with complex layers and bright acidity.
