Very interesting conditions. Driving out of Seattle through the national forest you see many gorges and miles and miles of trees. Suddenly we exit into barren dry foot hills. See the video and pictures of how dry the vineyards look. This accounts for the high acid not jammy-ripe fruit. It's also super chilly; temperatures of 25 degrees to 50s. The wines are hot with high alcohol but a lot of residual sugar and high acid.I'm impressed by how dry the conditions are with irrigation all over. These vineyards are on steep rocky sides of extremely dry barren foothills.Hopefully the pictures show what I see.[video data-wpid="26" src="/storage/3631-3031/DCIM/Camera/VID_20181118_101919183.mp4" class="failed size-full"].
