Vineyard:

Our small lot wine is harvested from carefully selected blocks that are estate grown and sustainably farmed.  With an east-west valley orientation, the site gets warm days and cool nights that are influenced by fog and breezes from the San Francisco Bay and Pacific Ocean.  The grapes are handpicked and sorted at harvest time in order to ensure premium quality.

Fermentation:

Fermentation took place in small one-ton open top bins and the grapes were punched down by hand twice daily, as well as small stainless steel tanks where the must was gently pumped over twice daily.

Aging:

The wine was aged for 16 months in 50% New and 50% second and third use French oak barrels.
