“The 2010 Vermentino is superlative,” writes Jordan Simon in a blog this week on Fodor’s, “with whiffs of wisteria and sage as well as lime zest and bosc pear. The dense, dark Fall Creek 2008 Meritus Bordeaux-style blend is jamming with forest fruits and earthiness; their Chenin Blanc is a steal, too.”

Here are more of winemaker Dave Reilly’s notes from the 2012 harvest at Duchman Family Winery. You can also follow Dave and the harvest on his Facebook by clicking here.
August 16 (evening) — Crushed 22 tons of Tempranillo from Bayer Family Vineyard and now babysitting everything else that is fermenting. And miles to go before we sleep. And miles to go before we sleep.
August 16 (morning) — Evening pump over and seed removal on Dolcetto, making our way down the line…
August 15 — No rest for the weary. We have finished up in the cellar for the night and will start bottling in the early am hours. Should wrap up bottling in time for the truck to roll up with Tempranillo grapes from Bayer Family Vineyards. If you haven’t been out to the winery in a while, it’s a good time to visit, lots of wine in the tasting room and lots of activity in the cellar.
