2013 was serene during most of the growing season, with little rain but covered skies; summer temperatures were very unusual because they averaged 26°C instead of our typical 36°C (79°F instead of 97°F). In the cool environment, it was the plants' own growing efforts that ripened the grapes, not really the sun. The obscure metabolism continues after the berries were separated from the plant, after they were fermented, and it drives forward in the wines even now, years before they can start aging.
