Harvest 2012 Is Well Underway


Sampling-Grapes

Always our favorite time of the year here at the winery - visiting with excited growers who look to us to turn their precious fruit into something amazing.  We’ve been rocking through our Sauvignon Blanc harvest and filling the often chaotic fermentation cellar with citrus, pineapple and yeasty aromas.  The early mornings seem quiet in comparison, alone in the vineyards where I can see what is yet to come...

Speaking of what is yet to come, the Merlot berries taste unreal out in the field.  Gone are the usual early herbaceous notes, instead sweet cherry fruit and huge tannins hint at something spectacular…I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
