The challenge with 2005 though was fighting dilute grapes from all the spring rain and summer green growth. This year I think it will be controlling the tannins and intensity from the small concentrated crop. So the pattern is similar, but the grapes are very different.
This photo is of the Crimson Clover vineyard. You get a good sense of the hills that surround this vineyard site
The plants are 4 years old now, and we're expecting about 2 tons from this 1 1/8 acre site.
It takes a lot of work during the year to end up with plants that look this perfect.
