Greetings from the winery in Sonoma. The 2023 wines are tasting beautiful! I visited Pickberry Vineyard on the way in this morning. Dependent on an incoming weather system, I'm thinking of pulling the Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot late this week or early/mid next week. The Cabernet Franc still needs to hang for a bit. I ran some samples:
Cab. Sauv: 22.7brx
Red berry flavors starting to develop. Texture coming through too
Really good color. Definite red berry characters and good texture
Cab Franc: 19.7brx
Still somewhat green. But hinting at some red berry flavors

And now a few words from Dusty!
This morning I finalized a private event we're hosting this week in our Healdsburg tasting room. Which also reminds me to make sure you've made a reservation at The Parish here in town on Thursday featuring the history Bistro Ralph menu and Smith Story Wines. Eric will be the Sommelier for the evening.
Also, tickets are available for the BFF Night at Cavallo Point in Sausalito this Thursday. Ali's pouring her BRAVE while the beneficiary of this fun evening is ZERO Breast Cancer based in Marin County.
