Production Notes

The grapes are destemmed, pressed, then cold settled in stainless steel tanks before moving to barrels for fermentation.

Vineyard Notes

2018 was a very good year with ideal weather conditions for the vines. Spring produced great set, and average rainfalls led to normal to above-normal yields. Consistently warm temperatures during the summer months without any drastic heat spikes or rain events allowed for longer “hang time” for the grapes, which led to fully ripe flavors.
