Harvest - October 2, 2007

We brought in the Petit Verdot this morning - it took less time to pick the grapes than to drive them to the winery! Now that's efficiency!

One ton of Petit Verdot is not a large quantity in the scheme of things, but it will bring a wonderful deep blueberry color and flavor to our Cabernet Sauvignon.

Thank you to Mike and Kelly for taking such good care of their Gobbler Grove Vineyard. The fruit looked (and tasted) absolutely delicious!

It is now resting nicely at the winery, cold soaking for 48 hours before starting the fermentation.

Enjoy the photos!
