Huge storm last night and – finally – rain.
This has been a very weird year: rotten spring and early summer, than an unusually late long, intense heat wave.
Precipitation has been close to nil for the last month.
However, a series of rainy days has been forecast…
Let us hope that these showers are not to heavy…
Merlot should be picked the last week of September and Cabernet the first 2 weeks of October.
The heat wave did cause scorching and intrupted ripening on some terroirs.
