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.
