Fruit was fermented in oak fermenters for 13 days and then pressed off into neutral Burgundy barrels where it aged for 10 months. During this time it was racked once and a single dose of sulfur was also added. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Made from Carignan grown in the sandy soils at Contra Costa’s famous Del Barba Vineyard. The Del Barba Family has been farming vineyards in and around Oakley since the early 1900s. Vineyards are farmed in pure Delhi sand with little intervention and even less water. The old Del Barba Ranch on Rose Avenue in Oakley, with its centennial center block of Carignane, Mataro (otherwise known as Mourvèdre), and Zinfandel, is surrounded by a block of ‘juvenile’ 30-year-old Zinfandel, which is where the Erggelet brothers pick their Carignane and Zinfandel.
