With the recovery of the vines that were impacted by two seasons of cold, coupled with a warm summer and fall, harvest times were typical. This vintage represents the maturing of the vineyards. The wines show increased concentration and depth partially due to the vineyard which was in its 13th leaf. Our sustainably farmed vineyard is Salmon Safe certified. Upon arriving at the winery the grapes are hand sorted, de-stemmed and crushed directly into a selection of both open and closed fermenters. We typically want up to a week of cold soaking of the fruit prior to the start of fermentation with a wild yeast followed by the addition of other yeasts. During fermentation (10-20 days) the wines are hand punched up to four times per day. The 2005 ONYX is aged in french oak barrels for 22 to 30 months prior to blending and bottling.
