The grapes for this wine were sourced from a small vineyard on the east side of the Silverado Trail just north of our winery in the southern part of the Napa Valley. They were hand picked on October 8, 2008 and fermented as a small lot in a T-bin. The wine was pressed on October 20, 2008. Thereafter it was aged in once used French Oak for 23 months. Only 24 cases made.
