Bright but full-bodied, Farmhouse Red combines jammy boysenberry with mild pepper flavors.
Two distinct vineyards combine in this vintage of Farmhouse. The Oakley vineyards run along the shores of the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers. The vines root deep in the sand-soil and produce intense fruit. The Sonoma Coast vineyards experience foggy mornings and sunny afternoons bringing out the bright fruit flavors and deep color.
We start with handpicked grapes. Must is pumped to our temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks. The juice is inoculated with wine yeast selected for its hardiness and alcohol tolerance. Once the wine has extracted just the right amount of tannins, the grapes are pressed. Both free run and press juice combine to enhance the wine’s structure.
