Two weeks spent harvesting fantastic grapes, and the containers are now in port waiting to get shipped to us. Since 2012, my personal favorite has been the merlot, but this year, harvesting tempranillo, and eating a few berries, of course, well, they tasted amazing. Bold tannins, sugars to give us 14 plus percent alcohol, and just amazing flavors. Now, the syrah fans out there will tell you it is always the best, as will the grenache noir and carignan fans. With excellently grown grapes, it really does come down to a question of preference, but really, wouldn't you want to make wine from these tempranillo grapes? I know all grapes will make fantastic wine this year, check out the double rainbow that arched over the town and its vineyards during the harvest!
