  • They've had a hell of a time with it in Burgundy, like a 50-90% lost vintage. Unsure on quality, but it's dubious.What's going on in Napa/Sonoma? I hear Halcon Alturas is a ways away from ripening, but the harvest of whites has been in full effect. When should the Cabernet, and other reds be "ready"?Let's pick now (or soon) I say!Floods and fros... Read More
