Planting Sangiovese, bloom

Almost wordless post - just not enough time.
Digging Sangiovese holes - more details to follow.

Primitivo blooming - notice all the green shot berries not blooming? Gotta love Zin. The scary thing is that in some areas of Lake County (us in particular) we are now just about even with Mendocino County when we are usually a little over a week behind, and we are now ahead of parts of Sonoma County. At moderate altitude, parts of Red Hills AVA are a good three weeks behind us. Gonna be another crazy year though....
