Zinfandel Harvest 9/12/2014

The decisions I make in the vineyard today will affect the wine you may drink in 2017.
Sobering thought, so I push it aside and rely on my experience with the vines and the grapes and the wine (36 consecutive years making wine from this vineyard). The grapes taste so good, crunchy sweet with a bit of acid, the seeds brown and nutty. Growing conditions have been near perfect and so, here we go;  set the alarm, go to bed, harvest tomorrow!
