Winemakers Notes

Our Merlot vineyards were harvested in late September and early October as they achieved the peak of flavor. Each vineyard lot was picked, fermented, and aged separately in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 21 months. After aging was complete, the wines were blended for taste and balance, and prior to bottling a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon was added to the blend to increase the wine’s complexity.
