I just got back from sampling grapes in 4 different vineyards. Fortunately for us, crush is still 3-4 weeks away. The brix (sugar content) was generally around 18% but needs to be around 26-27. The flavors are getting there but still needs some time. That is fortunate since we are going on a family sailing trip to Catalina the week after Labor Day. I'll sample before we go, see where the grapes are and let you know.
