WINEMAKER’S NOTES: The fifth bottling of Love Red’s grapes were harvested in the second week of September to preserve the grape’s natural acidity. The Carignan and Syrah were 100% destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The Valdiguié went under carbonic fermentation in stainless steel. Aged for 8 months in neutral French Oak barrels and blended before bottling.
VITICULTURAL AREA: The grapes come from 50- to 70-year-old vines in Solano County’s Green Valley. This area is tucked between Napa and Suisun Valley. Syrah comes from Parenti and Wirth Ranch. Valdiguie comes from Parenti, Wirth and Frei Vineyard. Carignan comes from Frei and Parenti Vineyard. The grapes of each vineyard grow in clay loam soils and come from dry-farmed and head-pruned vines.
Our wines are made naturally, meaning no use of inoculated yeasts or bacteria. We use only native yeast to spark fermentation. We do not add any powdered tannins or enzymes. A minimal dose of S02 is added 4 weeks before bottling to some wines.
