The Grapes

A classic close up of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. If you look close you can see the individual grapes are a bit shriveled from the heat. The sugars here are not that high but the heat has sucked out some of the water. You can also see the stems are a nice bright green which tells you the vine is still healthy. I brought these grapes in before they dried out, some brave souls wait till they look like raisins. Way in the background is my sweet new truck.

Harvest 2008

Now that the crazy blur that is harvest is over I had a minute to look at some pics I took. Here is our Midoriya Cabernet being crushed as Jeff Fontanella and Amy Aiken of Meander look over the process. All that shiny equipment is brand new for 2008. Oh, and the dog just happens to be named Payton.
