After alcoholic fermentation the wine was racked and underwent malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and 2nd fill barrels. Wines were racked and placed back in barrel to mature for 12 months (100% second fill barrels, 20% American). The barrels were blended together in May 2006 and bottled.
