2008 Crush Report

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.

Oh, c'mon. I hear there's some pretty good wine coming from the Central Valley in fancy jugs! ;-)
