The Good Grape

Those of you who have been following the 2010 growing season know we lost this year's harvest to a freak hail storm.  I recently wrote about the Syrah's canopy growing back.  The Tempranillo is not only growing a canopy, it is also trying really hard to put out another crop of grapes.  It doesn't matter that the grapes are growing out at the wrong place or that it is the wrong time of year; it is the thought that counts.  Being the traditional good grape of my vineyard family, it just wants to do the right thing.  I know, I'm not supposed to play favorites but I can't help it.  Tempranillo is just such a pleasure to grow.
