Winemaking

Pre-fermentation cold-soak adds layers of complexity by extracting a silkier tannin profile. Aged 8 months in 84% French oak (11% new) and 16% American oak.

Vineyards

Sonoma County mountain ridge and hillside estate fruit translates to high-toned red and black fruit, with distinct rich tannins and a soft lingering finish.

In 2014, we had a very pleasant growing season; it was long and certainly warm enough to ripen the fruit fully. The winemaking team loves vintages with rich fruit character and balanced acidity.
