Long ago, hand-binding books was considered an art form. A craft. Hard work rewarded by immense pride. To be a bookbinder was to be detail-oriented, dedicated and passionate. Today, Bookbinder Winery celebrates that same commitment— to doing things right, to getting it perfect and to loving the art.
From a few different CCOF vineyards in Napa Valley from vines that are 18-26 years old, this wine was made from grapes that were hand harvested and hand sorted at harvest. Then, they were moved immediately to a four-day cold soak to extract the rich, dark color from the skins. After warming on its own, fermentation began naturally using only native yeasts. The different varietals were pressed, settled and racked to barrel 96% French oak (45% new) and 4% American (all neutral), where they remained for 18 months.
