2014 Harvest stats:
   Vineyard:Napa, Valley
   Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
   Pick Date: October 27, 2014
   Pick Time: 7:19 a.m.
   Brix: 24.8
   Ph: 3.54
   TA: .535
Important Facts. Great timing after holding on and  picking a  week later (I still wanted to let it hang but things worked out wonderful)  to let the sugars and flavors mature (after a very cool October and late rains). Quality :excellent  Patience in the vineyard always pays off. No panic picking here. Just barreled after extended maceration. Wonderful color, fruit character and tannin. This one will be interesting (how it develops) when it comes to making the wine. 2010 is going to be a wonderful vintage.
