So how is 2010 CA vintage looking?

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times."  That is really what you hear when people talk about California's wine grape harvest 2010.  It was much cooler and wetter than normal, leading to very late ripening and some that were ruined by the late rains that came in October.  But on the other hand, the grapes that were harvested were excellent.  I was very happy with mine. There is a very deep, inky color in my wine I haven't seen in a Cabernet.  Less harvest quantities are supposed to mean more concentration of flavor and acids in the grapes that make it.   We'll see!  But I think 2010 is already shaping up to be a great year......
