Ratings & Reviews
Vinification

Total destemming. All fermentation takes place in temp-controlled stainless steel tanks. A Burgundian pneumatic system of daily pigéage is employed for the normal two-week cuvaison. Wines are not fined and only bottom portion of each tank undergoes light filtration.

Aging

Wines are moved by gravity to cement tanks for ageing, though élevage for a portion of the Syrah takes place in a combination of new and one-year-old barrels.
