Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Bud Break 2016
Drive along Highway 29 or the Silverado Trail from Napa to Calistoga and you can witness the dawn of a new cycle in the life of the vines. Cabernet Sauvignon is in the midst of bud break. Most of the vines have been pruned and dressed for this wonderful event in nature. Grape growers unite in the joy of celebrating a new year in the making of fine Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The recent rains have also given the growers more to celebrate. The question still remains: What will mother nature provide the grower and winemaker this year from bud break to harvest?
