Cabernet Sauvignon budbreak: 2013.

The Cabernet Sauvignon vines are pushing leaves and are merrily on their way for the 2013 vintage.  So that is all of Vinoland's vines up and running.  Of course, the Cabernet Sauvignon vines are at a very early stage, when compared to the Orange Muscat that now have about 12 inches of growth, and are at the point when they are in peril from the merest threat of frost.  And, as if on cue, the possibility of frost is forecast for this week...sheesh, farming!
I like this photograph of my little Cab-buddy, as it clearly shows the abscission scar, below the new bud, where last year's leaf used to be.  Aren't vines great?
Go little buddy, go!
