Berries were firm and had perfectly healthy skins and therefore vivid, deep flavors, great acidity and excellent freshness. The wines will be very pure, with strong specific vineyard signatures. But moderate weather prevailed throughout summer. The lack of heat waves kept sugar levels and phenolic maturity in sync. Ripening progressed slowly and predictably. Our fruit is hand-harvested into small bins in the early morning to protect the fruit and preserve freshness. Grapes are hand sorted and partially de-stemmed before going into small open top fermenters. Following a 5-7 day cold soak period and 10-12 day fermentation the wine is aged in French oak barrels.
Wine Enthusiast This blends 50% Merlot with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Syrah, combining them into a forceful, full-bodied and approachable wine of viscous richness and dried plum fruit.
