Varieties 54% Zinfandel, 37% Carignan, 5% Petite Sirah, 3% Pinot Noir, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon Winemaking Details To make this wine we assembled 29 small lots that had been vinified separately using various fermentation techniques to make a layered cohesive blend. Most of the lots were fermented with carbonic maceration, a gentle process that helps to keep early-harvest wines from becoming too tannic. After 5-9 days, depending on the lot, we pressed the juice off its skins where they fermented natively in tank. Then, to keep the wine bright and fresh, half of the lots were aged in barrels and half were aged in stainless steel tank. This wine received no additions except for a small amount of sulfur and it was filtered prior to bottling. We do not degas our wines, so it may have a bit of spritz, especially when young.
