Winemaker's Notes

A warm, silky, rich and spicy red wine with round, complex, lush fruit flavors, full body, and an intense finish. Ideal with hearty stews and game.

Grapes are hand-picked, with stringent double sorting at the vine. They are selectively de-stemmed and fermented for 15-20 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by gentle pneumatic pressing and malolactic fermentation.

Wines mature in tanks for the first nine months and are then put in foudres for 8-10 months depending on the vintage. They are bottled unfiltered at 19 months.
