...veraison is also moving along nicely, thank you very much. Although, my Syrah vines are not as far along as the Cabernet Sauvignon vines at TWWIAGE. But then it is much warmer up in Oakville than it is down here in Coombsville. Still, it looks like everyone in the valley is in for an early 2013 harvest, especially if the growing conditions continue to be as agreeable as they have up to this point. A friend who works at Mumm Napa told me that they are going to start bringing grapes in on July 29th - that's about 3 weeks early (as compared to previous harvests). Yikes, I'd better get my picking knife sharpened.
