Wente Vineyards Merlot Arroyo Seco Sandstone 2007
Fermentation: Each vineyard was harvested separately and fermented in upright fermenters. Rack and return, which is the process of draining all of the free-run juice off the cap and then returning the free-run juice back over the top of the fermenter, was performed twice daily. This method increases the color and tannin extractions and improves mouthfeel through the integration of oxygen. Aging: Aged for 20 months in French, American, Eastern European, and neutral oak.
