Now that we have had our first very welcome rain, our field crew will mount the ripping shanks on the tractor and get out and relieve the season's compaction in our vineyards. We'll follow with tilling and pre-emergent Herbicide to clean up before the weeds take off.
Our 2013s are coming through bottle shock, and we will be releasing them very soon! The Barbera is winning great reviews on our unannounced tastings, and the Cab Franc is showing well.
Our Wine of the Month for November is 2012 Delight. This wine was named for the Valley of Heart's Delight, our lovely Santa Clara Valley and is a blend of Merlot and Cab Franc.
