We’ve started our 2013 farmer tans with several unseasonably hot, dry days this last month. Bud break arrived around April 13th and the shoots have been pushing growth pretty quickly since then … time to finish the vineyard clean up and begin rubbing buds this next month. Also waiting to see the results of our vine grafting this spring. A small run of Gamay was grafted onto the Muller-Thurgau and Tempranillo onto the Gewurztraminer.
The tasting room opened last month with the release of our newest wines, the 2010 Pinot Noir Reserve and the 2011 Malbec, as well as an amazing bloom of columbines, wallflowers, poppies and bleeding hearts in the tasting room garden. We’re still dreaming up the lavender field plans and have started seeds for goji berries to see if we can get a small plot going somewhere on the property.

We’ve spent the last month in the vineyard; pruning, tightening wires and laying down canes, and we’re just days away from having all the vines in position for the 2013 growing season. Seeing the geometry of the vineyard in this stage is always a beautiful site. We’ll move into the winery at the beginning of April to bottle the 2012 vintages of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Chardonnay and 2011 Pinot Noir and hope to share them with you when the tasting room re-opens for the season next month!

Aromas of raspberry and pomegranate lead the way to flavors of oriental tea, chocolate, black pepper, vanilla and a hint of maple syrup. On the finish you will experience fine tannins and lingering flavors.
