Tech Details

Harvested from vineyards in Monterey, the west side of Paso Robles, and the Russian River. An elegant composition of sustainably farmed grapes from several different clones. Night harvested. Fruit is delivered to the winery cold. Partially destemmed clusters. Pre-fermentation and 48 hour cold soak to maximize fruit and color extraction. Pump over usually 3 times per day until 10 brix, then 2 times per day. After primary fermentation is complete, it finishes with malolactic in neutral barrels for complexity. Aged in Francois Freres medium toast neutral barrels for 12 months.
