2012 Harvest - Close to Perfect

It doesn't matter where you are in Napa Valley at the moment - everyone is talking about the 2012 vintage.  A bountiful fruit set in the spring was followed by even temperatures throughout the summer leading to perfectly proportioned fruit.  Winemakers and vineyard managers are almost giddy with excitement. 

I walked the vineyard this morning and noted just a couple of rows of fruit remaining from a vineyard client taking advantage of a couple more days of warm temperatures for a tiny burst of increased ripeness.

Here is some Clone 337 still hanging...

Can't wait to taste the wines post fermentation!
