Grapes are hand picked into small tubs and delivered to the winery just a few miles down the road.  We crush these grapes into small, open topped tanks and cold soak the grapes for about 5 days this cold soaking allows us to extract the color and fresh blackberry fruit flavors and aromas -  then we add our yeast and the fermentation takes off.  Fermentation lasts only about 7 days and then we press off the skins and put the wine directly into small, French Oak barrels with about 75% new oak and let the wine rest for 15 months before we bottle.  

Enjoy this wine, it is showing well and will continue to improve for the next 5-10 years.
