Winemaking Philosophy:
In general, my philosophy is very traditional/old world and natural. Varietal typicity is incredibly important to me: Cabernet Sauvignon should taste like Cabernet; Pinot Noir should taste like Pinot Noir, etc.

More than anything, balance is the most paramount element for me in winemaking. Anyone can have aromas and flavors, but balancing out all of the other elements within a wine between the tannins, alcohol, and acidity (amongst others) is critical.

When I have the opportunity, I prefer to use native fermentations and my wines receive extended time on the lees to build mid-palate and weight naturally. I like French oak with a minimum of 3-years air dried cooperage for resolving and evolving any fine oak tannins in the wine. And at bottling, wines should be unfiltered to keep the integrity of the wine and its mouth feel together.
