Bud Break !!

On Friday I spent the afternoon walking among the vines at our Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard on the south end of Napa Valley.

Karl and I have raved about these vines since we first tasted their fruit - and witnessing the vines start their growth for the 2009 vintage is as inspiring as ever.

I am not one to get excited over watching plants grow...BUT!...these vines are the lifeblood of Vellum. And now that the 2007 vintage is in bottle and the 2008 vintage is in barrel, I am thrilled to welcome the next vintage of Vellum Cabernet Sauvignon.

The vines are just starting to push out the new growth that will carry the 2009 vintage through harvest.

Enjoy the photos...
