Blending Trials Part 2
So today we wrapped up for 2009 our blending trials of our 2008 wines. One word:WOW. They are going to be good. We got our Walla Walla Valley Syrah, Columbia Valley Syrah, Wallatage, Cab Franc and the BFM done. These wines are gong to rock, we were all impressed with the structure , body and tannin of these wines, some of which will see the better part of another year in barrel. We had some guests "blenders" today and they understood that when we say its hard work that we are not lying! We go at least 15 rounds on each wine to explore the combinations, so that what goes in the bottle, rocks!
