WINEMAKING
Farmed with care, the grapes were picked by hand on a row-by-row basis to ensure optimal ripeness. The fruit was then hand sorted and berry fermented in small lots. The wine had a 25 day maceration and 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine was bottled unfiltered and unfined.

"This is a dense, seamless, and plush wine showcasing the impressive quality of the grapes and the craftmanship of its creation.  The wine's concentration shows first in its clear, nearly opaque purple-ruby color.  The immense aroma is of dark berries underlain with subtle French oak giving a complex, brooding, spicy impression.  The structure is plush and fleshy with all the elements of fruit, oak, tannins and acidity precisely balanced and intricately integrated.  A pure beam of concentrated dark, brambly fruit shines from the deep middle of the wine.  The tannins are rich and coat the mouth, yet remain superbly velvety from the opulent start to the long, lingering finsih.  This is a wine with the intensity of fine, ripe fruit and powerful structure to age and develop for many years in the bottle."
