Winemaker's Notes

This was our first vintage from this exalted Napa Vineyard which rendered less than 2.4 tons per acre. The grapes were picked at 4am under tractor lights then taken immediately to the winery where they were hand sorted on a sorting table, before being fermented in small capacity open top stainless steel tanks. They were then fermented with native yeast in Francois Freres "Allier" barrels for 12 months. It was then bottled unfiltered.

621 cases were produced from Lee Hudson's Vineyard in the Napa side of the Carneros District.
