Default Oregon Wine Harvest

It rained last night, but while tripping around the Yamhill County
wineries last weekend, the general word was that the harvesting has been
completed. The warmth of September caused everything to ripen at once, and
this was the shortest harvest on record. It also caused a higher than
normal loss to evaporation (about 10% this year.) The nights stayed cool,
so the acid is right up there, and I am looking forward to some nice wines
from the 2003 harvest.

Any other words from the harvests around the world??
