Hand Harvested Grapes | Native Yeasts | Small Lot Production | Unfined | Unfiltered
Dark violet in color with dense plum, ripe cherry, forest fruits, notes of tobacco, vanilla, leather and cassis, all brought together with warm toasted notes. The smooth entrance is full of ripe red and black fruits, fig, chocolate and menthol, while bright acidity on the mid palate is backed by round tannins providing balance and body with a finish that lingers on the palate.

The grapes for Con Tacto were all hand harvested, transported in small boxes that hold a maximum of 35 pounds to treat the clusters as gently as possible. Tedious and rigorous hand sorting of each cluster followed, removing any unwanted grapes or leaves, to allow only the best quality fruit.
The wines were fermented with native yeasts in open-top, one-ton fermenters that yield only 2 barrels.
