Demeter’s Grape Leaf is rich, full and fresh, inspired by a drive through the Napa Valley in California.
When we got onto the road, just above Napa, right about at Yountville, we rolled down the car windows. In flooded that wonderful odor of grape leaves baking in the sun. It was unlike anything we had ever smelled. We got down into the vines and smelled. It smelled different at different times of day, and, in fact --- and the vinters confirmed this --- the smell is different on different sides of the road where the soil changes.
The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else to do in the world.
