I started pruning the Cabernet sauvignon vines today. They're still dormant-ish, although the pruning wounds are bleeding profusely. Hopefully, in this battle of Vinogirl versus budbreak, I started pruning early enough this year that I'll be finished before the Cabernet, and Syrah, vines wake up, get organised and gang up on me. "Cry 'havoc!', and let slip the dogs of war." Or something like that.
