Trione Vineyards Alexander Valley Bordeaux Blend 2005
Each variety was fermented separately in small open top vessels. The Cabernet and Merlot were made using a unique cap irrigation device that brings in oxygen as the free-run wine is being circulated over the cap during the peak of fermentation. This technique ensures the complexing of tannins with the color compounds found in the grapes as well as maximizing proper yeast cell health and viability.
