Merlot in Bloom at BookCliff Vineyards

Most people are not aware that grapes bloom, let alone what they look like. It is a rare sight, as just for one week in late spring the tip of the grape clusters burst into tiny yellow flowers emanating a sweet smell. This year is especially magnificent as the cluster in particular of the Merlot grapes are almost twice the size of usual. I was fortunate to visit the vineyard in Palisade this week and snapped a picture. Enjoy!
