After the Frost

These lovely grape vines are Cabernet Sauvignon. They survived the frost quite well as they bud out after the others. It'll be fun to harvest them this year. They are now 5 years old and should be able to support a pretty good crop.

The Malvasia are rising from dead. This is exciting to watch. Vines can send up shoots time and time again, especially when they are young. Maybe we will get a small crop next year.

The older Tempranillo and Syrah are not doing as well as the others. I don't think we will be getting much of a crop from them this year but I remain hopeful. Maybe they are just hiding a little longer to make sure no more frosts knock them down. Who knows? It's possible.
