Early Sampling of 2012 Fruit

Early Sampling of 2012 FruitYesterday, we conducted focused sampling and tastings to see where things stand in the vineyard.  Though we are still about 6 weeks from harvest, if this early tasting is any indication, we are in store for a great vintage.  We observed small to moderate sized berries and a mature flavor profile not expected from young fruit in mid-August.  Good sugars were present but, more importantly, there was a depth to the flavor beyond the simple sweetness of the sugars at this point.

Things can change in a hurry in the vineyard, but so far we are excited at the potential this 2012 vintage holds.
