IN 2022 WE SWAPPED SOME OF OUR CABERNET SAUVIGNON FOR SOME TEMPRANILLO FROM AMERICAN RIVER. THE BERRIES ARE ALWAYS BIG, AND RIPEN NICE AND SLOWLY.

HAND-PICKED. 20% WHOLE BUNCHES ON THE TOP OF THE FERMENT, THE REST WHOLE BERRIES. WHEN FERMENT KICKED OFF, WE SAIGNÉED OFF 300L TO FERMENT IN A BRAND NEW FRENCH OAK BARREL AS A STRUCTURAL BLENDING COMPONENT. WE THEN TREATED THE REMAINING CONCENTRATED PORTION REALLY GENTLY, TO AVOID OVER EXTRACTION.

PRESSED A BIT BEFORE SUGAR DRYNESS TO KEEP THE FRUIT SHINING BRIGHT. RELAXED THE WHOLE LOT TOGETHER IN AGED FRENCH OAK FOR 6 MONTHS PRE-BOTTLING.
