Wine Making

 The fruit was hand-harvested in the cool morning hours and brought to the winery in half-ton bins. At the winery, the clusters were sorted using a double sorting system. First, the clusters were sorted by hand. The fruit then ran through a small de-stemmer that removed stems from the grapes before the individual berries being sorted to ensure the ideal grapes were chosen. These berries were delivered to a fermenter where there was a period of resting on skins. Warm fermentation temperatures were encouraged along with gentle cap maceration to achieve the desired color and structure for the wine before an extended maceration time on skins prior to Final pressing.  The wine was transferred directly to barrel for 20 months of maturation.

A rich, dense proile follows with  flavors of cassis and ripe black fruits, espresso, mocha, and molasses with subtle oak influence.  is is a deep, structured wine with excellent fine-grain tannin.
