Grapes are de-stemmed and undergo fermentation at 86°F. The grapes then goes through a 27-day maceration period with light pumping over, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wines age for 28 months in oak (80% American and 20% French) and spend 36 months aging in the bottle before they are released, for a total ageing of 64 months.
