The varietals were individually harvested into small bins, then the grapes were delivered to the winery in a refrigerat- ed truck to preserve freshness and minimize oxidation. The grapes were kept separate, sorted and de-stemmed into fermentation tanks where they rested and soaked for an average of 5 days. After warm fermentations, the wines went through extended maceration for an average of 8-12 additional days. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels for 19 months until bottling.
