2011 Rutherford Bradford Meritage

The 2011 growing season had it challenges; Early bud break-cool summer and early rains in late September and early October!!

As we decide when to pick the grapes by taste not chemistry it took a little longer to develop in the vineyard. We in fact picked 25 days after all our neighbors had picked! We are pleased with the results as the wine is very nice. This year's blend is 64% Cab, 32% Merlot and 4% Petite Verdot.
