We’ve been walking lots of vineyards this week and my boots are getting a workout for sure! This will be a short post this week but I just wanted to say that a huge portion of our Bordeaux reds will probably be picked in the next two weeks. Things are trending all together, the weather has been perfect and my prediction about a high Brix physiological ripeness seems to be holding true with the tannins tasting ripe around 26-27 Brix. It’s going to be an early year for sure!
