Harvest 2010: Late and Light

Unseasonably cool weather means a condensed harvest

Posted: October 8, 2010  By James Laube

Late and light. Those are the two words I hear most when California winemakers describe harvest 2010, now underway. Late is due to an unseasonably cool year, especially the summer, which many now call the summer that never was. Light refers to the crop, which is small this year. I recently checked up on the progress of vintage 2010 Napa Cabernet and Chardonnay, as well as Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and, perhaps the hardest hit of all, Zinfandel.
