Ruxton Vineyard Wednesday 11th looked about 30% veraison
Ruxton Vineyard Saturday 14th about 80% veraison.

Amazing that in 3 days that much color change in the grapes.
Temperature not exceeding high 70's.

Valdiguie Vineyard has very little veraison. Oh, OH! Thanksgiving?

Harvest looks at least 2 weeks behind last year.
