Winemaker Patrick Zilaro Notes
This varietal gave us many challenges in 2010, due to a cooler summer than usual followed by late season rain. The naturally large berries held more juice than normal, we had no choice but to perform a 20% saignee after day one of fermentation. The skin tannin was a little low, so we compensated with 50% new American oak from three forests. The resulting wine has two complementary features; fruity and easy to drink now, but also has distinct and flavorful oak tannin that will allow it to mature nicely.
