PRIME - update from the cellar

The 2005 "D4*" Cabernet is all but sold out (I believe we have 8 or so cases left so please feel free to re-order if you like the '05 as much as I do).

Right now were are preparing to release the 2006 D4 Cabernet as well as the (much anticipated by a certain Davis resident) 2008 PRIME Chardonnay. We are excited to have our second vintage out there and are thankful to all who supported the launch of PRIME over the last year.

The "funny thing" (read: expensive) about this business is as we sell out the 2005 and move on to the 2006 (and 2008 Chardonnay) we just had the pleasure of successfully bottling the 2007 Cabernets. After a short break its time to get ready to harvest the 2009 grapes. That's dealing with five years worth of products all at once!

That's it for now. Here's a couple shots of last week's bottling, these are iPhone versions, high quality to follow... First one is a a couple of '07 D4 Cabs going down the bottling line right after getting labeled. The last is what the whole vintage of '07 looks like in cases.

*Lingo update: D4 = District 4
