The Riesling Has Landed - Or, Gotcha, Goblin

Harvest Update #2: One of our favorite picks every year, the fifth J.Brix/Forlorn Hope Kick On Ranch Riesling Goblin grab on September 1 did not go off without a hitch (it NEVER goes off without a hitch), but the fruit is oh, so lovely and delicious; I'm sure in a few days, we'll forget all about the grumbling and the grumpy winemaker vineyard faces (no photos of those). Our 2015 Goblin (form of: The Augur & Cobolorum for J.Brix; Amerikanischen Kobold & a to-be-released serious sparkler for FH) is going to make some really exciting wines. As it does.

It's getting picked! (Whew.)
