Aging

Our winemaking began by hand-sorting fruit to ensure only ideal clusters were vinified. After the destemming process, the must was transferred to stainless steel fermentation vessels. Gentle pump-overs, rack and returns, and punch-downs were used to extract tannin and color from the skin. After the wine finished fermenting, it was pressed and settled before going to barrel. The wine went through malolactic fermentation while in barrel and was racked every three months. After nearly one year of oak maturation, the wine was bottled.

Tasting Notes

Full-bodied with smooth tannins, soft oak, and flavors of dark cherry & spice.
