This MAGNUM COLLECTION wine is made from grapes grown at Michel-Schlumberger estate vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. Our winemaker carefully selected individual barrels of Syrah, and added a small amount of our estate hillside block of Grenache to achieve the optimum expression of flavor for this Syrah.
The grapes were crushed into small fermenters. After cold-soaking for three days to extract rich color, the must fermented on the skins for three weeks to obtain a richly extracted wine.
