2007 Harvest Recap

The last of our Cabernet Sauvignon is in! That's it . . . now the fun begins. Both the Red Hen Chardonnay and Cold Creek Chardonnay are in barrel and making their way through fermentation. Alison, our winemaker, couldn't be happier with the flavors they are giving off at this early stage. Ripe tropical fruit for the Red Hen and beautiful lemon and apple for the Cold Creek. The reds are especially exciting this year, because they weathered a small patch of rain and then basked in the bright sun (80 degrees!) for about a week. The result: ripe, rich and exciting flavors, such as blueberry, cherry, and cassis. It was an ideal ending to a great year!
