Yes, this seems to be common, in many countries. We will see how things sort out.
And yet California seems to have a larger harvest then usual. 2012 vintages will be very interesting.
How so? (More than any other vintage, I mean.)
Mostly economically, I think. Lower yields for Europe means higher prices, the opposite for California, Oregon and Washington I would assume. The few vintners I know say this was not only a bountiful year but of very high quality fruit, also.
With the temps of the Pacific cooling, it will be interesting to see how the fog affects the CA coastal vineyards. Could be a great year, or maybe not?
