The grapes were handpicked from a small block named Carneros 288, planted in 1957 with Cabernet Sauvignon vines. The grapes were carefully selected before crushing and there was a cold maceration period of 12 days at 4-5c before fermenting.
This fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and the maceration of the must in contact with the skins lasted 25 days. The wine was then aged in new French oak barrels for a period of 16 months, not filtered but stayed another 12 months then bottled, before its release.
