In Spring 2012 the lowest 2/3 of an acre was overgrafted to equal vine counts of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. The grafts took well and there was bloom and set that first year. That fruit was discarded, because of it’s youth on the stalk. With well healed grafs, these vines lept from the canes in 2013 making good cluster counts with developed, distinctive and unique-to-each-varietal’s flaovr. The parcel was harvested together. The Cabernet from the organically farmed old vines on the family property was glorious.
