Winery Notes:  At the winery, the fruit was cold-soaked for 24 hours, then individual lots were inoculated with different yeasts to achieve more complexity in the glass. Twice daily pump overs followed to extract color, structure and flavor. The wine was barrel aged for 14 months to allow the tannins to soften and the blend of the different lots to harmonize.
