100% Camp 4 Vineyard fruit

Turiya wines inaugural vintage

5 day cold soak

8 day low temperature fermentation

Soft press, separating free run from pressed juice.  No Syrah free run was used in the final blend only Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wines were barreled in once used barrels purchased from Erik at Booker winery and Stephan at L'Aventure.  A great part of my philosophy is seeking out the best fruit, equipment, etc.  Barrels were a VERY important choice as they would house the precious elixir, imparting flavors and nuances that could potentially be bad.  Since I was using used barrels, I went for the very best, selecting ones from premier producers whom I respect and admire very much.

Timing was also always in my head, with customers asking when they could buy the wines, it became a difficult task to say they weren't ready yet.  Other producers put red wines out in as quick as 11 months but I was working on a blend of two grapes that required time to develop complexity and intrigue.  Patience became my middle name and I had time, so I endeavored to create another blend the following year and let this 2008, inaugural vintage, continue to age and gain it's temperament.

After extended aging in late 2012 the wines were finally bottled.  The flavors throughout the process seemed to change, divide and multiply finally giving me the outcome I'd hoped for all along.  I invite you to enjoy a bottle of the first creation of mine.  Thank you.

Always,

Angela
