A Humbling Task

We have been truly blessed with a great growing season so far during the 2015 Vintage.  Three blocks of grapes have been harvested, with four more to go.  If the weather stays dry, with hot days This will be a Vintage year for the record books.  The taste and the analytical analysis of them are stunning.  That really makes it difficult as a wine maker.  You can easily make a simple mistake and destroy what the vines and the “terroir” provide you.  It is a very humbling task to nurture , from juice to finished, aged, bottled wine, with the least influence, allowing the vine to speak to the consumer.  So our task is slow, long, and difficult.  Cheers!
