Looks great!! Just checked mine, Brix range 20-26. Cabs and Carmenere, both on the low side... Syrah and Merlot, on the high side and will be harvested soon.

Looking like deer season, Sat, and harvest are once again conflicting!!

Wow. That is great.

I got 2 people and one dog. And while I love the dog dearly, he did not help one darn bit.

Picked the rest of the reds, Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and petit sirah. ~1200lbs. Eight adults four kids and two dogs this time. Like balatonwine says, dogs werenít much help. I inoculated it all on Sunday as Iíll have to press next Saturday due to my travel schedule. I used Asante yeast, thanks to NorCal for the idea. They are all fermenting nicely.
