Well, it looks as though things are progressing VERY quickly in the vineyard. This warm weather (yesterday was 100°F+) is really pushing the maturity. As you can see color is good and the seeds are browning and becoming crunchy. I think we’ll be harvesting at the end of the month.
The flavors are very good. Round but not much acid, which will be checked with samples early next week. The skins aren’t releasing color yet, although they should very soon.
Our plans are to do the first sugar reading early this coming week.
