What's left in the vineyard and why?

Sangiovese is all that is left.
Our last grapes for the 2006 season are still hanging in Carmel Valley at the Estate.
Marta Kraftzeck reports as follows "We are essentially 3 brix behind where we were on this date last year. Therefore abour 2-3 weeks behind. hopefully we won't get any rains for the next month and we can pick them in early November or so".

Brix currently - 17.4 in the west block
House block - 17.1
East block - 17.1

Come on California sunshine! By the way - temperature for tomorrow is forcasted at 80 degrees F.
