A blend of two vineyards. One (90%) is a small organically farmed vineyard located on a knoll at the northeast corner of the Yountville appellation. This vineyard’s light volcanic soil and long growing season in the temperate Yountville climate brings rich flavor to the fruit. The other (10%) is located at 1,200 foot elevation on Pritchard Hill three miles to the north. This wonderful depth and structure of this fruit complements and elevates the classic Yountville flavor of this wine.
Fermentation: The grapes were crushed into small fermenters. After “cold-soaking” to extract rich color, the crushed grapes fermented for two weeks to fully develop a rich mouthfeel and palate.
Cooperage / Aging: The wine was aged for 30 months in French oak barrels (40% new).
