So we are gearing up to bottle our newest addition to the Prime Family...Chardonnay (only about 100 cases, due out in Summer 2009!). We were playing around with color schemes and these are the finalists. The yellow color will be more of a gold to match the foil if we can pull it off. The chardonnay bottle will be about the same color as the one we used for Prime Cabernet. Let us know if you have a preference to one label over the other, we are interested to know.

The yearly grape crush report is in my hand and is not good news (in my opinion). District 4 (Napa) Cabernet Sauvignon is up to an average price of $4688.76 a ton. Up from $4143.14 last year. Since this is how grape growers price their fruit, we are going to be paying more $$$ for our spectacular Coombsville fruit this year.
As usual, I like to see what I would be paying if we were using Cabernet from Fresno (District 13)- $344.08. Quite a bargain but don't expect to see PRIME District 13 Cabernet Sauvignon anytime soon.
