Early bud break with excellent weather during the flowering set. A cooler than normal growing season resulted in higher acids and structure in the wines.
One day of cold soak followed by seven days of fermentation. We pressed off at a low degree of brix to allow bright, clean fruit expression and avoid heavy tannins. After two rackings the wine was aged in French and American oak for seven months.
