Rockford Hill Reserve wines come from the most expressive blocks from our best vineyards. Complex and layered, the rich fruit profile of these wine displays the ultimate finesse and balance.

Growing Condition

2016 may well go down as the vintage of the decade. The warm, dry spring led to good fruit-set and summer was generally quite cool. The cooling effect from the ocean created ideal weather conditions for slow ripening with above average growing degree days.
