It was a tough year in California. Cool weather, and a rainy harvest. There was a lot of rot. Many distributors could not, or would not deliver the required tonnages. Frankly, I was a bit surprised to actually get all my fruit.
Sugar was indeed down a bit. (24.5) brix. But to be honest, that is almost perfect for me. I'm a bit tired of getting over-sugared grapes. I end up either making rocket fuel, or watering it back.
This year, I don't have to adjust the sugar.
