Poor us

October 25, 2011



Today we took a quick break from harvest to see how the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is coming along. Part of making wine commercially is checking up on your upcoming vintages that are already in bottle to get an idea of how close they are to being ready to go to market. We usually check in every three months or so.

This is a terrible burden to bear.
The 08 Cabernet Sauvignon is not quite ready for release yet, the tannins are a little too aggressive at the front of the palate, but that will change with a little more time in the bottle. This wine is showing a very deep nose, full of cassis and blackberry, with just a hint of red cherry and baking spices on the tongue. We’re definitely looking forward to releasing this wine!
There was a lot else going on at the winery today, so much so in fact that there wasn’t really time to do it all justice in a blog post. Be sure to check back tomorrow for an update on what we’re doing.
