….or, more accurately, on the vine. 

These pictures of Montelena’s ‘A’ block of Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in 1973, were taken this afternoon, Sunday, May 22.  Note the baby grape bunches on the vine.  In a couple of more weeks, these bunches will flower.  Compare these pictures to the pictures of the same block during bud break (see my blog from April 4th) to see how fast the vineyards have changed in the last six weeks.
