The Windthrow blend is made from the top barrels from each vintage. In 2011, we
used just seven barrels, the very best in our cellar. We can achieve this selection through the painstaking process of individual barrel rackings: that is, the wine in each barrel is kept that same barrel until final blending. The differences and nuances that develop from barrel to barrel over time are significant. With hard work and patience, we are able to pick the most expressive and sumptuously-textured barrels for this reserve blend.
