Winery Notes:
Hand-harvested, clusters were sorted in the vineyardand then gently destemmed following an evening in our cold room. All ‘jack stems’ were removed on the sorting table. Musts were coldsoaked in open-top fermenters for five days, and then inoculated withcultured yeasts to begin slow fermentation. Each tank was manuallypunched down two times per day, with a total maceration time of sixteen to twenty-eight days. Upon completion of primary fermenta-tion and maceration, all free run wine was transferred to tank for set-tling, and then pressed at extremely low pressure (0.08 bars) to avoid extracting bitterness. After settling overnight both free-run and press wines were racked to barrels. Ten was bottled with no fining and no filtration.Character: A brooding and intense wine. The aromas begin with notes of lavender and blackberries, then a myriad of savory spices,and a hint of white sage. Firm, mature tannins-evidence of Ten’s age ability-are followed by a long, velvety finish
