Production information

Producer: Marmesa

Larry Brooks is a Margarita-loving winemaker with over thirty years experience on the Californian wine scene. With stints in charge of the cellars at top wineries including Acacia and Chalone, today he uses his wealth of contacts to source grapes for the Marmesa range. This micro negociant-style approach means Larry can cherry pick small parcels of fruit from top vineyards and blend them together to produce outstanding wines at a price far lower than other American wines of a similar quality.

Production note

Harvested in early October, around the 7th. This makes it the latest harvest on record for the appellation. Fermentation technique is primarily open topped with punch down – average maceration is 16 days, which is relatively long compared to others. Aged in French oak barrels, on the fine lees until blending in summer.
