Larry Leigon's insight:

It's almost Spring and for those of you who have been watching the weather you know 2014 has been a curious year---much dryer than almost any time ever recorded.  Late frosts could still cut down the size of the crop, but it's already noticeably warmer. Last year was a giant vintage---the second in the last two years. So it wouldn't be surprising if 2014 comes in lighter but there is plenty of time for surprises between now and September.
