Found it at 14:40, 31 Dec. 2002. Found it as described and in poor to fair condition. The winery looks to be in disrepair, but still in use.
WGS84 coordinates found by 3 minute occupation with 7 strong satellites and 1 WAAS satellite. I was unable to get near the tank (private property) so the coordinates were taken from the road, about 1000 feet east of the tank.
