...but well worth the effort. This year's grapes are exceptional! I think my favorite is the tempranillo, mine weighed in at 24.5 brix, I did a small acid adjustent, and it rocks! Big bold tannins, lots of dark berries and blueberry on the nose! We still have tempranillo, syrah, merlot and a bit of carignan. When you taste this carignan, you will know what it should be- rich dark, earthy and berry perfume...not the typical carignan from California to say the least!
