Product Description

The 2012 vintage was warm, dry, and relaxed compared to the previous cool seasons.  We brought in each varietal at its optimum maturity over a three week period in October.  It was aged in mostly neutral French oak with a portion of the Grenache in large format 500L puncheon barrels to reduce barrel impact.
