This wine is comprised of three separate blocks from the Occidental Ridge Vineyard, located just outside of Occidental, California. This cool-climate vineyard provides us with the 114 clone, which is fermented with 10% whole clusters in an upright foudre. Additionally, both the 667 and the 777 clones are de-stemmed and fermented in stainless steel. After 12-14 days of native fermentation with gentle punch downs, the wines is basket pressed to barrel and allowed a native ML conversion before aging on lees for 11 months. The barrels were 30% new French oak, 30% second year, and 40% third year. As with all of Failla's wines, they use no SO2 on the crushpad, make no additions, and bottle unfined and unfiltered.
