Ari and Stuart Spoto at the early morning harvest of Oakville Merlot and Cabernet Franc. In this photo, Ari and Stuart are field sorting the fruit prior to the crush.
The fruit was picked at 26.5 Brix (3.5pH) and more importantly tasting fantastic. After one day in the cold room tank, the fruit is already dark in color and rich in flavor. 2012 is shaping up to be a great wine year!
