Hand-harvested in the early morning hours, the grapes underwent a whole-berry fermentation, unlocking profound color, aroma, and flavor extraction. Fermented at 82°F, this process allowed for a rich extraction from the skins. The resulting wine was aged in a blend of 50% new French oak and 50% neutral oak for 18 months, creating a harmonious union of oak and fruit. The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon blend was bottled unfined and unfiltered, ensuring that each sip preserves the true essence of the Napa Valley.
