When I first saw that you responded, I was filled with hope and excitement of all vast wisdom and accumulated knowledge you might pass on. If I wanted some smarteleck response, I would have posted on "some other" wine board! wink
For my money, anything a dumb ol' West Coast bird can learn, our Va birds can learn bestliest and fastestly. Humph!

(thanks for your response. It is very similar to what a very experienced winemaker told me yesterday when visiting a different Va. vineyard.)
