We start with handpicked grapes. Must is pumped to our temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks. 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. The wine is racked to 40% new French oak with a medium toast, to enhance but not overpower the fruit.
