Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are harvested at the peak of ripeness from each vineyard. After hand sorting and destemming , the grapes are cold soaked in tanks for three days. Alcoholic fermentation takes place over two weeks, after which the grapes undergo an additional two weeks of skin contact before pressing. They are then transferred to French oak barrels to age for 16 months, during which the wine in each barrel is tasted several times to monitor its quality. The blend is then selected from the various barrels and the wine bottled with minimal clarification and filtering. After bottling, the wine continues to age for approximately one more year in our cellars.
