All grapes were hand harvested before the stemmed whole berries and free run juice were transferred to fermenting tanks, where they were cold soaked for five days with twice daily pump overs. Fermentation was maintained at a consistent 26 degrees switching to 3 pump overs a day which provides excellent extraction of flavor and tannin. Racked to a combination of French and American Oak barrels where Malolactic Fermentation took place.  Total barrel aging time was of 20 months prior to being bottled.

Cooperage: 90% French Oak, 10% American Oak, 20% New, predominately Radoux medium toast

Tasting Notes: Juicy ripe raspberries break way to herbaceous green tea with a rich smokey bacon fat finish. Lingering fruit and tannin balance this wine for an incredible long finish.
