Cabernet Sauvignon Grape

Post  Scooter D on Thu Aug 04, 2011 5:42 pm

My first post, hope it turns out right.


Here is a grape that I have had for a couple of years now, I picked it up at a old nursery in Temecula, CA. I paid 15 or 20 dollars for it.
The trunk is 2 inches and it is 42 inches wide and 24 inches high.
Hope you enjoy.

Very nice fruiting tree.
I guess I have to invest in an Airconditioned nursery room. I love grapes.

Nice potted shrub Wink

I'm sure that Californians, at least some of them, will try to make red wine with a bit less tanins, and above all, less of that "green oak cask" flavor Very Happy

Anyway, Sauvignon is best for dry white wine.

It's a real challenge to make a godd wine, sorry, a good bonsai from vitis vinifera. I was given one with a 12-15 cm thick base, and I can't see how to style it ! Embarassed

Great bonsai. Very enjoyable to look at. Must be stimulating to drink a nice glass of wine while sitting in the room with it.
