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) the grapes were pumped over twice daily to aid in extraction of color and tannin. After approximately seven days, the free run wine was drained away from the grapes and sent to barrel for malolactic fermentation.

Aging

100% barrel aged, 20% new American oak for 18 months.
