I was told the South African CAB would be in the week of the 22nd and the Chilean Pinot Noir the 29th. Right now my plans are for Saturday May 4th. Have plans for Cinco de Mayo.

Just received this email from Gino Pinto's but only asked about the grapes I'm getting, here's the response. So I'll be heading up next Saturday.

"South African Cab Sav is expected to arrive tomorrow. The Pinot Noir from Chile will be arriving Thursday or Friday next week. If you have not placed an order yet, I would recommend getting one in."

That's a kick in the butt. I had my weekend all planned. Is that all the Chilean or just some varietals?

What time Saturday does does everyone plan on being at Gino Pinto's. I was going to shoot for 9 or 10 but flexible.

Some of the Chilean grapes came in. My Pinot Noir was one of them. I plan on being there around 9-10 on Saturday.

I picked up my cab juice pail and 1 lug of cab sav grapes today from GP. My pH was high and my TA was low (3.92 pH, 3 TA). I’d like to hear how you make out with your grapes. The grapes were nice - sweet, uniform size and ripeness.
I’m adding Tartaric acid today, I hope that fixes both problems. Starting with 2/3 of what I think I need and will test and readjust. I’m a newbie so this is a little scary.

Did you get the SA or Chilean Cab?
