Once we have received the fruit at the winery the grapes are inoculated with yeast that helps retain the fruits’ natural character while extracting a good amount of tannin during an even fermentation. The 2007 Tempranillo was a much smaller lot of grapes compared to our core wine production, so the fruit is handled more gently and a lot of attention is paid to the wine as it develops. For our red wine we use a combination of rotary fermentation as well as static fermentation (tank fermentation), because we can get different characteristics from each. The rotary fermentation is typically short and monitored closely so that the wine never gets bitter or over extracted. After completion of malolactic fermentation the wine is racked and then aged 12 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels.
The color of this wine is a vibrant deep garnet. The aromas of ripe blackberries, cassis and hints of coffee are complimented with balanced oak and leather notes. The flavors are forward with black fruit and ample acidity and soft tannins. The wine is ready to drink, but will continue to age over the next 5 to 8 years.
