This Deux Terres is created from a selection of the very finest lots made from our mountain-top and benchland vineyards.
Moderate temperatures with no appreciable rainfall throughout the ripening season allowed the grapes to fully develop exceptionally concentrated flavors.
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 22 months in French oak barrels (50% new). Eight barrels were individually selected for the optimum expression of flavor and structure for this blend.
