Paloma Milestones: 1991
Last year we cleared some fir trees that were shading an area of the Merlot; we decided to plant a small block of Syrah on the cleared area as an experiment. Carolyn and Jim Pride, with their wine maker Bob Foley, bought some bulk Merlot wine made from our grapes that we had sold to another winery. Bob finished the wine and blended it with Pride’s Cabernet Sauvignon. This purchase will be a major event for us, but we won’t know it for two more years.
