“When the fruit arrived after being harvested in the early morning hours, I knew it would be something special. I cold soaked the wine for four days - I really wanted to extract a stunning color and flavor profile.” - Leo Gabica, Winemaker

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Sourced from our longtime friends and partners, Serra Vineyards of the Applegate Valley AVA in Southern Oregon.
Production Notes
Our estate experienced a cool and wet spring which resulted in a late bud break followed by an average bloom and veraison. This was followed by Oregon’s 8th warmest year on record, which lead to an extremely bountiful harvest.
Winemaker Notes
Cold-soaked for 4 days before fermentation. Aged in French & American Oak barrels (25% French/75% French-American Hybrid) for 14 months. Oak barrels used were 100% neutral.
