Washington State Merlot 1988: Drink now
Bloom and set proceeded on schedule and the vines went into the summer with a good-sized crop
The winter was unusual dry and mild and gentle. Bloom and set proceeded right on schedule and the vines went into the summer weeks carrying a good-sized crop. A pattern of warm days, cool nights throughout most of September brought the fruit to full maturity.
