Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) After a one-day cold soak, the tank was bled to concentrate flavors. We pressed off at 3 degrees Brix after an eight-day fermentation to allow brighter, cleaner fruit expression and avoid heavy tannins. After two aerative rackings the wine went down to barrel in October and blended in May the following year. 20% of the barrels were new French oak coopered in Spain; the remaining barrels were older adding richness to the mouthfeel without masking the fruit flavors of the wine.
