VARIETIES: 100% Baga
COLOR: Dense, dark red color.
NOSE: Fresh red fruit aromas, slight green fig, and balsamic notes.
PALATE: Bright, juicy red and dark fruit flavors, with an elegant demeanor, robust tannins, and lingering acidity.
WINEMAKING: The grapes were handpicked and crushed to our one tone open top fomenters. The natural or 'wild' yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate the sugar fermentation. Cultured winery yeasts were then added to complete this fermentation and cap/skin management was controlled by hand with a cap plunger. Matured in French and American oak barrels for 18 months, followed by 18 months in bottle before market release.
