End of Crush

It is down to the final days of the 09 harvest. Thick skinned red grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cab Franc. The 2009 harvest has been a challenge with the market this year more so than with mother nature. Our worst economic set back since the Great Depression has shown that wine can fall victim to economics.

Quality wise it has been a good year with good ripe fruit in all varietals, althought it was common for flavor to show up after other factors had been reached. The 2009 wines will show very positively as they become available over the next seveal years.
