Harvest Through My Eyes
Harvest started three weeks ago for Jeff Cohn Cellars. That is, I started reviewing vineyards more closely for green drops and how the vineyards were handling our heat spikes.
I can say all is well!! In fact we brought in 6 tons of old vine Zinfandel from St. Peter’s Church that has gone through 5 days cold soak and is just starting to ferment.
To add to the excitement we bottled yesterday- 2 Guys 2 Barrels Stagecoach Viognier, The First Date, Orcio, Smoke & Mirror and The Impostor!
Today we will receive Glaeser Syrah which will be used in both Impostor and Smoke & Mirrors. Vineyard visits this week will include El Diablo, Sweetwater Springs, Saitone, with a chance of Stagecoach.
At the end of the week I will be looking at a new vineyard for us, the Rossi Ranch in Sonoma, managed by the talented Phil Coturri. This will be a source for some old vine Zin, Grenache, and Mourvedre. A lot of traveling will be involved but the rewards are amazing!
