Technical data

The wine underwent 14-21 days of fermentation on skins at 86º F / 30º C as well as full malolactic fermentation, and aged 16 months in French oak barrels. The harvest: The 2008 season began with a very cold winter featuring two snowstorms and little rain. The temperature plummeted (to 23° F / -5° C) during a few days in January and February, enabling a deep, essential hibernation of the grapevines. During the early months of spring, the temperature was relatively high, leading to an early arousal and bud-burst of the grapevines. In May, which was colder than average, the grapevines’ development slowed down, returning the pace to a multi-year average. The harvest began a bit earlier than normal with the ripening of most varieties, but during the course of the season the pace of ripening slowed down, and the harvest was completed around the same time as in previous years. The 2008 harvest was characterized by low yields and highly concentrated, flavorful and complex wines.
