Winemaker Notes

The fruit was 100% destemmed to a single four ton open top fermenter. The wine was
pumped over daily during a four day cold soak and then inoculated from with an
indigenous yeast starter culture from our estate vineyard. The wine was fermented
for fourteen days and hand punched two times daily. The wine was aged ten months in
mixed French cooperage, which was an average of two years old before blending.

Vintage Notes

rain during bloom caused yields to be lower than normal -focusing concentration of
berry and flavor development. A cooler than normal July and August helped the fruit
ripen steadily and we harvested this vineyard in early September. The 2020 wines are
