Gentle techniques in the cellar and imagination in the vineyard achieved a fruit-driven style. The grapes were fermented in a combination of small open top fermenters and stainless steel fermenting tanks with selected yeasts propagated from cellars in Burgundy, pressed during the last days of fermentation, and racked as soon as the wine finished malolactic fermentation. Aging took place in a combination of small French oak barrels and larger stainless steel tanks for 8 months.
It is enticing on the nose with lovely aromatics, including tart red cherry and cranberry, followed by subtle earthy and savory notes. The palate is medium bodied with silky textures and delicious bright red fruit that shows just a bit darker in profile than the nose. This gem is garnet in color and lingers with a long, fruit filled finish.
