Vineyards

The TNT 2 acre vineyard was planted in 1999 and 2000 with clones 114, 115, 667 and 777 on Riparia Gloire rootstock with Goldridge soil. This vineyard is on a south-facing slight slope in between the towns of Sebastopol & Occidental in the Green Valley sub region of Russian River.

Winemaking

Grapes were hand picked and sorted then destemmed into one-ton bins. The must was cold soaked for five days and then allowed to warm up and start fermentation. The bins are punched down four times daily until the wine was dry. Then the wine was pressed off into barrel and was allowed to go through Malolactic fermentation. It was then lightly sulphured and aged on the lees for ten months. The wine was carefully racked and bottled.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine exudes quality of Vineyard consistently with bright red fruits of pomegranate, red cherry, raspberry and ripe wild strawberry. The textures carry through from start to finish of lush silky textures that embody the flavors of the wine for a long finish.
