The inclusion of a small percentage of whole clusters in the fermentation lends greater structure and aging potential to these bottlings.

The entire vineyard has been retrained to a "lyre"-shaped split-canopy, vertical shoot-positioned trellis system which allows for superior light penetration to the fruiting zone and systematic hand care.
