Balancing Mad Scientist & Cool Chemist

The completion of harvest time not only brings the anticipation of bringing in a new vintage, but it prompts us to do extra checking and evaluation of all our aging wines. We will spend the next three months working exclusively with the 2013 vintage. So we need to make certain that all the aging wines are set and ready for some quiet time. This means that every wine gets tasted along with a full chemistry analysis before we begin harvest.  The extra jolt of tests ensures us that we will not veer from the quality that is Kiepersol. Who said in high school, "I'll never have to use this stuff in the real world"?
