The nineteenth century vines, still affected by the previous year's drought, set a small crop. Fortunately the younger, hillside parcels provided better yields. Late August heat helped flavors develop fully for a September harvest. It took an extended, eleven day fermentation to achieve full extraction. Once assembled the wine was moved to barrel where tannins could soften with aging. This sensuous wine will continue to develop over the next 7-8 years.
