Our flagship red wine.
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 racked to a combination of French and American barrels ranging from new to two years old. With an average of 18 months in oak - the blending trials begin. The challenging, but enjoyable part, is finding the perfect blend using the barrel aged “penta” components.
