It was a gorgeous day, a bone-warming 65°F, so I decided to start pruning the Syrah vines. I didn't get very far though before it was time to take Vinodog 2 for a walk. On my way past the Orange muscat vines I noticed that bud swell has begun. It's happening, right now! And so another vintage begins: my viticultural-clock is ticking. Sigh.
