Stay Away Thieving Birds

Mountain Harvest at Oakville Ranch Vineyards

chardonnay is ready to go
color of new mowed hay
acids mellow

young cabernet, first crop
sweet and full

tannins
first sampling done on entire ranch
thought we would be late
but the flavors are ahead of last year

tiny berries
cooling in the morning fog
stay away thieving birds

Guess Phil agrees with Robert Louis Stevenson..."and the wine is bottled poetry."
