About This Item

Fire Sign brings together the best aspects of the Estate Vineyard and a “no holds barred” wine making philosophy. Typically low yielding vines are farmed with sustainable agriculture procedures including alternate row tillage, perennial grasses in vine row middles and utilizing mulch produced on site from previous year’s pommace. Fruit is hand harvested, de-stemmed, cold soaked and slowly macerated in small open top fermenters for approximately 30 days. Classic de le stage techniques are applied, with controlled oxygenation. The wine is pressed gently to retain a high ratio of free run. Each individual lot was racked into select 100% new select fine grain French oak and aged for 18 months. The barrels are then evaluated and the highest rated barrels are selected for the Fire Sign Cuvee. Flavors of ripe black cherry, blackberry, black currant, toasted vanilla, and anise dominate. Also noted are flavors of leather and tobacco with muscular round tannins on the finish. This blend is a powerful yet velegant representation of the estate vintage.
