Yakima Valley grapes have begun their maturation process

July 02, 2014

This month's update on the five Cabernet Sauvignon vines we are monitoring during the growing season focuses on berry set. Each of these vines is located in a different micro-climate or sub AVA within the Yakima Valley appellation. Great weather during June produced an excellent fruit set. Now is when seeds, berry flesh and skin tannins begin to develop.
