Winemaking

The grapes were optically sorted to the highest degree of quality. The wine saw 35% new French oak for 14 months, which adds structure and weight to the palate, while accentuating the natural red fruit. The barrels add spice, vanilla, mocha, and espresso to the aromatics. This wine is open top fermented punched down 4 times daily.

Food Pairing
