    Jim Bond scores big (again) in the 46th Annual U.S. Amateur Wine Competition

    '16 Cab 70%/Syrah 30% Blend -- Gold, BOS
    '16 Cabernet Sauvignon -- Gold
    '16 Syrah -- Gold

    From Jim:

    Vintage 2016 was an excellent year for wine grape growing in the Paso Robles AVA area.  At 9.78", the annual rain fall for Paso that year was less than normal, however, the weather through out the growing season was ideal and produced premium fruit in the red varietals.  Excellent wine grapes are needed to produce excellent wine...period.  We were fortunate with the results of our '16 Cab 70%/Syrah 30% Blend getting Gold, BOS, '16 Cabernet Sauvignon -- Gold and the '16 Syrah -- Gold.  With the abundant rainfall we've had this past year, 14.66", we hope that "Bacchus" will smile on us for the '19 Vintage.
