It's January 14th and it's 70+ degrees here in Downtown Napa.
Now California is well known for it's abundant sunshine, fresh air and blue skies BUT it is still winter and we seem to be a bit off our game. No rain....zero, zip, nada. Not a drop in months.
As the rest of the US is battling ice, snow and rains and now flooding by way of the melting ice and snow, we here in Wine Country are praying hard for rain.
California has had issues with a lack of water for years now and this year will challenge us all to conserve in everyway possible. No one is tossing it in yet and saying it is all doom and gloom but we do live and die by farming and that means we need water.
On a more upbeat front.... the EDICT 2012 whites will be out very soon!
The 2010 Cabernet will follow later in this quarter.
We are bottling our brand new Rosé on the 28th of January and that will most likely be released in March. Made from 100% Syrah grapes sourced from the Sierra Foothills and made specifically to be Rosé. This is really an amazing wine that can be enjoyed year round. We are only making 150 cases of this vintage so watch you inboxes for the offical release notice.
It will sell out fast....or I guarantee you the EDICT team will take it all!
