||Open-top fermentation, indigenous yeast fermentation
This Grenache comes from the Four Brothers Vineyard along the north-western slope of Sonoma Mountain. The vineyard is situated in a cool microclimate because of its proximity to the cold winds and fog that blow through the Estero Gap from the Pacific Ocean. This multifaceted wine is produced from a field-blend of 3 different clones of Grenache, Syrah and Alicante Bouchet.
Harvested in the early morning, the fruit was rigorously hand sorted prior to destemming and open-top indigenous yeast fermentation and barrel-aged in 100% neutral French Oak for 16 months.
