This wine is a good example of our Wall of Sound approach to winemaking. The Roussanne, Viognier and Grenache Blanc were pressed separately, and we divided the juice into six components, each of which was intentionally produced differently. Some were fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels, some in stainless steel barrels, and some in a new French oak barrel. Our goal was to make a wine that exhibits more complexity and layers of flavor than we could have achieved using simpler methods. It took us four blending sessions to sort through all the possibilities.
