Our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are currently at 23 BRIX. We are forecasting to pick the grapes for the SHW group buy organized by Seth on Saturday, September 2nd (it is possible it will be delayed until Saturday, September 9th as we are targeting to pick at 24.5 BRIX).
The grapes are grown under the supervision of Mike Anderson and Nate Kane, who are the respectively the former and current head viticulturalists for UC Davis vineyards in Napa (Oakville) and Davis. They have managed the irrigation, pruning and thinning to produce the highest quality grapes. The grapes will be picked by Servin-Lopez from Napa who pick for many of the famous vineyards in Napa, as well as Marcus and me.
We grow 9 acres of grapes: Cab S, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Malbec, Chardonnay and Roussanne. Our soils are silt-loam and clay-loam, similar to the soils in the Napa valley floor. We benefit from the delta breeze to ensure we have cool nights, and obviously we get the hot days in Davis, for growing very good grapes for producing fine wines. Andy, Seth and Linda, and several commercial wineries used our Cab S grapes last year.
Saturday is the preferred day for the group buy organized by Seth, but if anyone wants to pick their own grapes then they could pick on a different day. The price is the same picked or self-picked at $1,600 per ton.
