Another night of pressing

Tracey and I are going to press two tons of old vine syrah tonight. With an eight month old, it is often easier to press after Isabel is asleep. I can't help but think of the REM song - Gardening at Night:

"I see your money on the floor, I felt the pocket change
Though all the feelings that broke through that door
Just didn’t seem to be too real
The yard is nothing but a fence, the sun just hurts my eyes
Somewhere it must be time for penitence. gardening at night is never where
gardening at night gardening at night gardening at night"

Anyway, the wine is a really deep, dark color and very tannic. Our 2004 took the most time to develop in barrel (which is why we are waiting to release it). I expect the 2005 to be similar but we shall see.
