Here's to the Winemakers

They chew on grapes before harvest. They measure brix. They ponder. They ponder some more. They ask around. They sniff, they spit, they swish. They smell. They sniff and spit and swish some more. Endlessly. They stomp the grapes. They push the buttons. They pick the oak toast. They do the chemical analysis. 


So many cabernets, but only one harvest each year. 


So many labs, so much analysis. All in pursuit of...the perfect Cab. 


Here's the latest crop of their fine handiwork, label by label.
