Picking took place in the early morning to keep the fruit as cool as possible. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes for this wine were de-stemmed, but not crushed, leaving over 90% whole berries. The berries and juice were cold soaked and fermented using mainly native yeasts, then aged for 18 months in French Oak.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
