Wine Maker's Notes

We fermented the wine in small lots, which allowed us to treat each one as a unique expression of the vineyard. By using a variety of fermentation practices, yeast strains and barrel coopers, we created individual components that we carefully pieced together for the final blend. We used a minimum of fining and filtration and we aged the wine in 85 percent French oak barrels for 20 months. The resulting wine has elegant, classic flavors of rich, velvety Canby raspberry, Bing and black cherry and Belgian chocolate.
