Lush Canopy Marks a Healthy Start to 2012 Vintage

The drama of Napa's 2011 growing season still looms large and an unusually dry winter had the entire gower community bracing for the worst.  But Mother Nature took a chill-pill and delivered a very wet early spring.  Bud break arrived right on schedule and the vines sprung into action with time-lapse like speed.

You can take a walk around the vinyeard by viewing this gallery of "living pictures" shot with the new Lytro camera.  The Lytro captures light waves vs pixels and allows a viewer to change the focal point by clicking on various parts of the picture.  You can give it a try in the picture above - click on Meteor's signature Blue Oak on the horizon and watch it come into focus.  Then click on the leaf in the foreground.  Enjoy the full gallery.
