Winemaker Notes
“The vineyard sings in this bottle! These grapes were hand-picked during the third week of September and fermented in open-top bins where they received hand punch downs twice a day. After cold soaking for nearly four weeks, this wine was aged 29 months in once-filled Quintessence French barrels. The resulting wine is classic, it presents a lush, vibrant palate with bright fruit and a pleasingly smooth finish.” – Winemaker Stephanie Trotter Zacharia
