Production Notes
The grapes were hand-picked, whole cluster pressed and racked off after absorbing the proper amount of pigment from the skins. In order to preserve and enhance aromatics, fermentation was carried out at a cool 54°F, lengthening the process and producing rich, fruit-forward notes.
Vineyard Notes
After plenty of winter rain, the growing season got off to an early start due to an abnormal heat spell early in February. Cooler temperatures in March prolonged set but the vine canopy growth was very strong. The vines experienced warm weather in early August leading to a compact harvest.
