They were meticulously hand sorted on a shaker table then destemmed into 2-ton open top, stainless steel fermenters. The fermentation was arrested by fortification with a brandy of Pinot noir. The wine was then racked into a mixture of new and used 60 gallon French oak barrels. The best barrels of fortified merlot and fortified syrah, from various vintages, were blended to create this dessert wine.
