All Done with Gill Vineyard

My most important viticultural project of the year is Gill Vineyard, on the mountainous west side of Paso Robles. It has over four acres of hillside clone 877 Syrah, of which I am a big fan, but has never had planned canopy management or been leaf thinned until this year. Results were spectacular; the wine's fantastic, though I'm a little afraid to tell you the finished alcohol. It really doesn't show 'hot' at all.
It's 35 proof.

"WZ2.5 1/7/11 WTF?"
