2000 Sonoma County

We created this wine by harvesting fruit from five vineyards in the Russian River Valley,Sonoma Coast and Alexander Valley regions.We use traditional open-top tanks,and whole-berry fermentations combining “punched cap ” and gravity--fed “rack and return ” techniques to gently extract flavor from the grapes. We developed this unique regime to preserve delicate fruit and give a soft,supple feel in our finished wines.For this vintage,we limited barrel aging to twelve months in order to accentuate ripe cherry aromas and flavors with toasted oak and spice beneath.In the mouth the wine is firm yet velvety,with lingering flavors.While drinking nicely now,it should evolve gracefully for up to five years.
