2010 Blends–In process

The process of blending wines is really lots of fun! Until it isn’t. I love it because it’s a lot like Sudoku. Moving wines around until you come up with just the right combination of flavor, aroma and texture, then making the numbers work. I’ve always liked solving puzzles, which is why I have always liked math, which is why I like blending wines.

The part that isn’t fun is the mess that comes with blending. Millions of wine glasses are dirtied. They must then be washed and polished. News flash: I do not own a wine glass polishing fairy.

The blends are not quite perfected, but they are getting there. Some new wines are emerging from the mix!  I have a bottling date set for April 16th, and there is still a lot of work to be done to be ready for that day.  I will keep you posted on what I decide on when the blends are finalized.
