Winemaker Cary Gott walked our Butterdragon Hill vineyard yesterday. Here is a transcript of his recorded memo:
It’s Monday morning about 10 o’clock. The drippers are on in the 337 Cabernet. The grapes are starting to get some very nice flavors to them. Later this week I’ll do some sugars but it’s amazing that there’s just virtually no sunburn. The grapes just look in great shape. Obviously were a long ways away from harvest but they’re healthy and happy. So, Butterdragon from a winemaker’s point of view looks great.
