Each variety is hand-picked, hand sorted and barrel aged separately. During fermentation of each wine the bins were punched down 3 times a day to ensure maximum extraction of color and tannins. After dryness is reached the wines were then matured separately for 18 months in new and neutral French and American oak prior to blending and bottling.
