Kim's vineyard overlooking San Pablo Bay is located southeast of Carneros on the road leading down to American Canyon, sort of in a no-man's land between the better known parts of Napa Valley, just a mile down the road from our winery in the Crusher District. Kim farms the vineyard personally, and keeps bees on the property. We picked this vineyard by hand and partially destemmed the fruit to open top barrels for native primary fermentation. We pressed entirely by hand, and racked to one new French barrel and two neutral barrels for a natural malolactic fermentation. The wine aged for twelve months in barrel prior to racking to steel. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Three barrels; 74 cases produced.
