Vineyard: The Haynes Vineyard is a noble site. Cool morning air off San Pablo Bay sinks down in the Coombsville Bowl and creates a long and mild growing season. The vines are planted in deep, alluvial cobblestone topsoil with a layer of white volcanic ash that stores tiny amounts of moisture and allows the fruit to maintain acidity and develop an elegant and refined mineral and tannin structure.
Winemaking: The grapes were fermented 100% whole cluster in small open top fermenters at cool temperatures. They were gently foot tread 1-2 times a day through a short cold soak and native yeast fermentation. The wine spent 12 months in barrel on the lees and was bottled un-fined and unfiltered.
