Rescheduling the China Bowl Cab

September 28, 2011

We decided to take a last minute look at the China Bowl Cabernet Sauvignon today, and after some deliberation we decided to push the first pick back to Saturday, instead of picking tomorrow as we had originally planned. The sugars haven’t come up quite like we expected (probably due to the cool weather we had over the weekend), and the flavors could use a little more time to develop as well. This may give you an idea how chaotic harvest can be; many decisions end up being changed at the last second, after having been made at the penultimate second. It all depends on the weather (which can turn on a dime) and the biology of the vines. Fortunately, it looks like we’re in for a nice hot spell over the next few days, so the Cab should be where we need it by the weekend. Flexibility is the name of the game, even for a small winery like us!

One of the nicest things about harvest is getting to taste the juice samples we bring in from the field, sweeter and more flavorful than anything you could buy in the store.
