Forgive me now, because I’m writing this all with my eyes half way shut and it is a struggle right now. The early mornings and long days of harvest are starting to take their toll.

Barrel Room, only some of it!

To start off this post, let’s talk barrel samples.  Today, I was sent to collect selected Cabernet Sauvignon barrel samples from the 07 harvest for Joe Shirley (Folie winemaker) to taste.  These samples came from multiple vineyards throught Napa Valley, all aging separately until the final blend is made.  So, to get the wine into the little 12oz bottle, I used a small hose to siphon.

 It was fun to actually try some of these 07 cabs, and see what the next Folie a Deux production release is going to be all about.  Be excited, be very excited.

That’s it, I have to give up, bed time at 6:45pm.  Write cha all later. Goodnight! Finally!
