Red Wines

Each of our red wine offerings begins with superior hand harvested fruit from select independent vineyards. Every step of the journey from grape, to crush and ferment followed by extended barrel ageing, is dedicated to preserving fruit character and integrity,  producing finished wines of the highest caliber. No industrial shortcuts or enhancers, no acidity adjustments, no enzymes, no fining or filtering,, no oak cubes, chips or dust. No step is rushed. These wines evolve gradually while resting quietly in barrels, allowing them to reach their full potential before we capture those qualities under cork.
