It's still twiggy and leafless at Winding Road Cellars, though the temperature was warm and the sun was bright. My "Earthly Paradise" wine art book is selling well at Winding Road. My wine friends and I were there to deliver more books and sip the excellent vintages there. I am told that the trees, flowers, and vines sprout at least a week later than their counterparts back near the coast and the big city. So while the cherry blossoms are at their peak now in the city, they will bloom later at the wineries. This gives me another chance to see them, if I'm lucky and the weather is good.
