All 4 taste like crap. Acidic with no fruit or tannin noted. The Syrah and Merlot both have bell pepper up front - blech. Tomorrow, I'll add the K-Carbonate and move to the garage.
I think I lucked out this Spring. Just checked my Pinot Noir, it was pH of 3.35, tastes and smells very good at this point. Now my Pinot Grigio batches are high in acid, but that was operator error because I added too much tartaric acid (though it was 1/2 of what I should have) because my pH meter was giving me issues (have since replaced with a very stable meter).

Hit the Chileans with k-carbonate and banished them to the garage. Glad that's over. I was dreading carrying them up the stairs and across the house. 3 6's and 1 3 gallon.

Just finished the draft of 2016's tax returns. Maybe batting cages with my oldest a little later (gonna be near 70 again today). Holiday tomorrow and we're getting together with some friends tonight. Would like to bottle the WS Amarone if I have time.

Yesterday, we had 82 boxes of hardwood flooring delivered as part of the repairs from the water damage we had last month. Installation starts Wednesday.

picked up 35 gal of Niagara and 20 of Chambourcin from Erie today. Took my wife to Erie for a thank you for her working so hard to make the winery a success. We tasted a few wines, ate at our favorite places and generally relaxed.

Looking forward to a trip to NC with ffemt to trim the vineyard and planning a trip to the Finger Lakes to try some NY wineries.....
