Terroir:

This wine is made from 100% estate-grown fruit. Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA). The red varieties were planted on southern exposure slopes. The clay strata includes a significant proportion of rocks, mainly shists from volcanic basalts.

Vintage Notes:

After a cold winter with some bud loss, a hot and dry summer and great weather conditions throughout harvest led to excellent flavor and concentration.

 

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for New World Reserve are hand-harvested and sorted then gravity fed to tank where it undergoes a cold maceration for 4-5 days.  The grapes are then fermented entirely in stainless tanks at no more than 81° F.  After alcoholic fermentation, an extended post maceration allows for additional body and structure. Afterwards, malolactic fermentation in barrel softens the wine by removing malic acid. Only free run wines are used in New World Reserve and are aged in about 50% new and 50% 1 year old French oak barrels for 18 months before bottling.
