Channing Daughters hand-picks all grapes. White grapes are whole-cluster pressed, while red grapes are stomped by foot and punched down by hand into fermentation tanks. All wine is gravity bottled, topping off a host of methods that remain both traditional and artisanal. Small and unique vineyard lots of grapes are fermented and bottled separately.
High-toned red fruits, aromatic and inviting freshness on the nose. The wine is medium body and textured with juicy fresh finish.
