Details
Old Vines, Ferrero Vineyards, Lodi California

Direct from the vineyard in Lodi where sandy, clay loam soil; hot days, cool nights and 35 year old vines combine to produce unique grapes bursting with complex, concentrated flavors.

Exhibits silken layers of multidimensional delight. It starts with an up-front core of blackberry and dark cherry aromas, followed by suggestions of blueberry, raspberry, cranberry and dried plum. Undertones are of chocolate, almond and exotic spice. Ends with an unmistakable black pepper sensation.

Enjoy your first bottles after 2-3 months when the powerful fruit flavors dominate. However, do cellar some for months, or years, to experience a more refined balance and the vast array of characteristics which time integrates into harmonized waves of complexity.

CRUSHED GRAPE PACKS

Cellar Craft uses over 12 pounds of virgin, varietal grapes to produce "Crushed Grape Packs” for true, on-the-skins fermentation in its Showcase reds. All of the natural skins and solids from variety-specific grapes are captured for extra extraction of aromatics, flavor, tannin, color and body during the fermentation stage.

Ready to bottle in six to eight weeks.
18 liter kit produces 23 liters (6 gallons) of wine.
