Once the grapes are picked, which can take anywhere from three days to three weeks depending on the weather, they are crushed and the juice placed in large stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Fermentation is allowed to proceed until just the right amount of sugar has been converted to alcohol, at which point the young wine is separate from the remaining pomace of skins and sediment and racked into French oak barrels to age in the caves. Periodically, the barrels are racked over the course of two years to remove standing sediment prior to bottling, corking, labeling and packaging. Wine cases are then stored in a specially designed, temperature controlled warehouse. Read less

The color is dark ruby with slight purple around edges. The aroma is ripe blackberries, roasted herbs, cedar, violets, honeysuckle and black currents. The palate is full bodied, with short tannins that give this wine a whole full mouth richness and a great texture. The fruit, oak and acid balance is showing very well. Spice, coffee, vanilla and black fruit.
