Three weeks later than normal!!! The quality seems to be excellent, partly because of the small crop, 40 % of normal, and partly because of the long hang time. The cool, wet spring during bloom has affected most of our varieties. The reds are a week or two away.

Amador and the 2,000 foot mountain areas around Napa such as Atlas Peak both bud out three weeks later than the Napa Valley Floor.
