    PRODUCTION DETAILS:

    The varietals were individually crushed, followed by a 4 day cold soak at 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The fermentations continued for 3 weeks with peak temperatures of 94 degrees Fahrenheit. To extract the most flavors and color, the juice was gently pumped over 3 times a day. Maceration (skin contact) lasted from 25 to a total of 38 days before the grapes were gently pressed. The wine was racked a total of 7 times during barrel aging.
