Following a brief period at cool temperatures (24 hours at 46-50°F), the juice and skins are fermented together for 8-10 days at 75° F, with frequent pumping over to bring out the fruit aromas. Toward the end of fermentation the temperature is raised up to 86° F to increase the extraction of tannins from the skins. The wine is then aged for 12 months in French oak barriques, followed by an additional 6-8 months of bottle aging before release.
