Region: Alexander Valley
Type: Red Wine
Berries are fermented whole-cluster in large concrete tanks. The berries remain intact and protected with a constant blanket of C02 until their native yeasts begin to ferment the grape sugars from the inside out. A slow mortification breaks down the color components in the skins, infusing the juice inside the still-unbroken berries with a vibrant red hue. When fully dry, it is pressed back into the concrete vessels for 6 months of aging.
This wine shows the amazing depth of flavor & dark fruit from these rugged, ancient vines.
