Whatever Normal Means
The holidays are coming, the weather is cooling down and I can finally break out my sweaters and some of my favorite recipes. Even though we’re still staying home, when I pull out a special bottle of wine I’ve been saving, it makes me want to put on a fancy outfit and strut around the house. My kids look at me like I’ve lost it, but I just tell them weird is more fun than normal. Whatever normal means.
We finished picking the third week of October, with Block Four Cabernet Sauvignon. It was only fitting that since I pruned the entire block myself, that we should hand-pick it ourselves as well. That was a full-circle moment for me to be in charge of the entire year's process. I didn’t stand up straight for four days. I might never do that again. Never say never though. A woman always reserves the right to change her mind.
All in all, the vineyard was in a harmonious state this year, the fruit looked absolutely beautiful, and the soil is alive and well. Today we are pressing Block One and Cab Franc, to put them to rest for winter.
