Bud break is here…

…the growing season has begun!  After a rainy, wet March, the last week has been beautiful.  The vines just couldn’t wait to bud.  Below is a picture of a new bud on one of the Cabernet Sauvignon vines from block A, planted in 1972.  This picture was taken Thursday afternoon.  By next week, the whole vineyard will be sprouting with green shoots.  This is my favorite time of year!

In a few weeks the vines will be cloaked in green shoots. It all happens so fast.
