End of the Line
The grape picking aspect of harvest is nearly finished and we are about 4 weeks away from being completely wrapped and barreled down.
The first pick from the Adams Ranch fermented beautifully and is safely in barrel. The composition was 65% Syrah, 16% Cinsuat, 11% Roussanne and 8% Grenache. We used new Atelier French oak barrels.
The second Adams Ranch pick (100% Syrah) and the first James Berry Vineyard pick (Grenache, Syrah and Roussanne) are nearly dry and will be pressed into barrels this week.
We will picking Bien Nacido this Tuesday (100% Syrah) and the final pick at Adams Ranch Thursday (Grenache and Cinsuat).
Photos coming soon!
