PORK SPARERIBS BRAISED IN RED WINE

When the fruit comes in from the vineyard to the winery, the first thing we do is destem it – without crushing – into small 1-ton fermenters. We use proprietary yeast, which we’ve cultured from that year’s vineyard samples. Using strains from our many vineyards gives us some complexity. Later in the fermentation process we delestage. The result is large, soft tannins – just the kind we like. We rarely use new oak in our cellar as we much prefer the gentle aging acheived with neutral French oak. In addition, our reserve wines are never filtered. Our goal for each wine is just the right amount of soft tannins, balanced with luscious fruit and bright acidity.
