Vineyard Notes

This 2014 Deux Terres is created from a selection of the very finest lots made from our mountain-top and benchland vineyards.

Harvest:  Sept 29th to Oct 13th, 2014

Production Notes

Fermentation:  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.

Cooperage / Aging:  The wine was aged for 20 months in French oak barrels (56% new).  Barrels were individually selected for the optimum expression of flavor and structure for this blend. 

Bottling Date:  August 15, 2016
