Growing Conditions

The 2013 vintage was another rock star year following an amazing 2012. There was a long, dry, and even growing season which is the perfect condition for winegrowing. This year allowed us to pick at the peak of ripeness which allow the wines to exhibit their most pure varietal characteristics.

Winemaking

These grapes were hand-harvested from their Rutherford vines, and whole cluster pressed before barrel aging in 100% new Russian oak for 18 months. The wine is sur lie aged, and goes through 100% malolactic fermentation prior to bottling, giving the wine its beautiful creamy palate and viscosity.
