8/6/12. 1000 words for book, logged. Nice so far, this day off. Little Kerouac upstairs naps. And me, his obsessive writer father, here on couch, watching Sun appear. Should be a bit warm today, which’ll be good for the grapes. Excited for my wine, 2B made with Kazzy. Doesn’t look like Katie and I will be doing another project, which saddens me, but I can still follow her, tag along and learn a lot, I’m sure. Taking winemaking notes today, without fail. Need to keep up on my Self-education, if I ever want to make wine, eventually sell it like Ed. No tasting 2nite, with my big run tomorrow. Need to watch what I eat today as well. Taking a break from this “wine blog” to do research on actual “wine” material, making it, tasting notes, varietal growth, aging… Everything. Wonder if I could harvest SB at different times, perhaps a couple weeks apart [2 separate blocks], eventually blending them together. Would that compromise expression? Don’t think so. Different Bx levels, molding bottle character. Just made a note to Self, in winemaking document on desktop about blending a little Sémillon into my SB project. And I know people do that. Just wanted to note I was thinking about that. Don’t really want to do it. Looking to bottle 100% SB. Pure varietal expression.
My winemaking style, more than blending, is more on varietal translation, interpretation. Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon. Smooth & tropical, voluptuous & deep, erotically magnetic.. respectively.
11:02pm. Sipping sparkling water. The berry type I like. Not sure if I’m running 2morrow morning. The scheduled outing, I mean. I’m running either way, no matter. I’ll detail it more, but a revolution’s just around the corner. One entirely Literary, that’ll change everything. Wish I could tell you more. But, the line-crossing I’ve before addressed is finally here. Ripening.
