Bloom in Stan Clarke Vineyard 2014

It’s here!  We are pulling the lowered wires up to contain the lanky vines in the new vineyard and thinning the Stan Clarke vines.  That much proximity and it was very evident caps were off and bloom is in full swing.

Merlot bloom, the upper portion of the cluster is caps off!

It has been a long, very informative and exciting school year; counting down the days until the quarter is done though.
