Winemaking

Hand-sorted clusters and berries briefly and gently crushed and soaked for a short time. Controlled malolactic fermentation in stainless steel to maximize fruit character.

Aged for 4 months in used small French barrels.

 

The Year

Timely bud-break, no late frosts, and a lovely, rainy-humid spring marked the start, followed by a balanced and warm early-spring. However, April surprised us with some frost causing some damage to our NW vineyards. The blooming and binding period was perfect leading to full and healthy bunches. Frequently heavy rainstorms complicated vineyard work during the summer month and led to pre-harvest. In August, well-balanced warm (28-30 C) days helped to achieve silky tannins and deep colors while the cool (16-18 C) nights contributed to building optimal acidity structure in the red wines of 2016.
