2007 Alexander Valley Reserve

Bright cherry, cassis and ripe plum marry together in the aromas of this wine. Firm and structured in the mouth, the flavors of cassis and black cherry combine with fine, dusty tannins. Supported by ample acidity, these flavors lead to a finish of black fruit and integrated oak

Winemaker Notes

De-stemmed and gently into stainless steel fermentation tanks. Inoculated with Pasteur Red yeast, fermentation completed in 12 days. Pumped over twice daily. Held on the skins for an additional 10 days to complete malolactic fermentation and soften tannins. Gently pressed in bladder press, racked off gross lees and moved to barrels where the wine was racked quarterly to allow for natural clarification. The final blend was assembled from hand selected individual barrels and bottled in May, 2009. Barrel aged in 80% new barrels for 22 months (100% French)
