Winemaker Note
The grapes for Colosal Red Blend were hand-selected, crushed and then cold soaked for three to four days to maximize color and flavor extraction. The juice remained in contact with the skins for up to three weeks throughout the fermentation process to foster optimal flavor development. We fermented the lots separately in upright conical tanks for six days at a maximum temperature of 85°F before blending. This wine underwent malolactic fermentation to create a more textured mouthfeel. A majority of the wine was aged for 15 months in a combination of medium-toasted French and American oak barriques.
