The grapes were fermented fourteen days in stainless steel to complete yeast fermentation, followed by four weeks in large oak cooperage while completing malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in 52% French and 48% American small oak barrels for twelve months and in large oak cooperage for an additional six months. The wine was then bottled and aged for an additional twenty-one months at the winery so that upon release it would be elegant and approachable
