Winemaking

These grapes underwent a 5 day cold soak upon arriving at the winery, followed by a 8 day fermentation and 3 days of extended maceration. Open top fermenters were used with twice daily punchdowns. All native yeast used in both primary and secondary fermentation.

Tasting Notes

This wine is made from one particular block of the Lee Vineyard which is planted to the Swan Clone. This clone came from cuttings from Joseph Swan’s vineyard in the Russian River Valley. The original material is believed to have been suitcase cuttings from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti. This wine tends to be the lightest and most feminine of the line-up, evoking Burgundian thoughts. A delicate nose of rose petals and red cherry, showing a silky finesse on the palate with soft tannins and light acidity creating a wonderful balance.
