Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) We harvested the grapes when they reached their optimum flavor maturity and sugar-to-acid balance, then rushed them to our nearby winery for gentle crushing. We fermented the must (juice and skins) with a selected yeast strain in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to retain fruitiness, and then oak aged the wine for complexity. We “married” the Cabernet-Merlot for several more months, with judicious amounts of oak, to achieve just the right balance of fruit and toasted oak spices.
