Viticulture

Soil

A combination of unique growing conditions including a cooler climate, a thin soil layer and vineyard elevations of 1,200 – 1,400 feet contribute to the area’s unique character.

Vinification

The grapes were gently destemmed and allowed to cold soak in the tank prior to inoculation with yeast strains selected to emphasize terroir and varietal character. Once fermentation began (in stainless steel tanks) the grapes were pumped over twice daily to aid in the extraction of color and tannin. After about seven days, the free run wine was drained away from the grapes and sent to barrel for malolactic fermentation.

Aging

15% new American oak for seven months.
