Can anyone tell me the date of Cab Bud and Bloom in Napa an Sonoma happened his year? It would really help with projected harvest dates.

This year Cabernet bud break in Oakville was around April 1.

I was in Sonoma County today (road trip vacation with my family). Grapes are still very green. I forgot to ask the guy at Clos Du Bois when harvest would be. But he made it sound like mid/late August.

The Sierra Foothills are typically a few weeks ahead of Napa / Sonoma. All indications are a late Aug harvest for many of the varieties in my neck of the woods.

I know you asked about Cab but I was in Sonoma (Dry Creek) about a week ago. Vineyard owner said his Syrah bud break was around April 6.
