Winemaker Penny Gadd Coster Notes
The fruit is picked at the peak of ripeness, and extended maceration is used to ferment the wine completely to dryness before pressing. This keeps the pulp and the skins in contact with the juice, allowing complete extraction of the colors and flavors. The wine is aged in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels for over 24 months. After aging in barrels, the wine is bottle-aged before releasing. The wine is fruit-forward in taste with berry flavors, not over-oaked and very drinkable. Having been bottle-aged before release, it is not necessary for the consumer to bottle-age the wine before enjoying it; the wine will, however, continue to improve in the bottle for many years.
