Last Press Of 2008

Eddie & I filling the press basketSo we pressed off our last lot yesterday, the Mourvedre, after 16 days cuvaison. The shot above was made by Anaba intern Jon Cave; Eddie (red shirt) and I are in the wood tank, which is held up by the forklift as we shovel the pomace into the press basket. Anaba intern #2 Jordan Via is in the foreground.

I'm glad it's done, but surprisingly knackered. In the larger context this was not a difficult harvest.

Just discovered the blog, John, and I look forward to following it. We enjoyed some of your 2000 vintage with friends for Thanksgiving. Perfect pairing with my first deep-fried turkey. I look forward to the next club shipment!

Hi Bob: Good to hear from you, and glad you enjoyed the 2000! I'm working to get the 2004 Nicholson Pinot out to the Wine Club in the next week. Cheers!
