Acres and acres of beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Can't wait for it to be harvested.​

The grapes produced by these 20 yr old vines taste as good as they look. Looking at harvesting them next week.​

Baby's in a box! Four to five day cold soak. Postponing fermentation in order to extract tannins and color.
