The St. Helena Star, a small little rag based in the quaint northern Napa Valley town of St. Helena, had a nice article yesterday regarding the status of the 2007 harvest thus far. The opening paragraph just about sums everything up:
Sweltering temperatures have hastened the harvesting of the more sensitive varietals. Reds are still maturing, but should be ready for picking in the next few weeks. Overall, quality is excellent, but quantity is below average.
