Considerations

Assemblage

Spring Mountain VineyardAt this time, usually in March, rather than rack the different lots of new wine from barrel to barrel, the wines are brought to tanks where a blend is made.  The wine is thoroughly mixed and then brought from the tank back to barrel.  Sometimes the winemaker is unsure of how a wine or a group of wines will age, and he may question how they might fit into the blend.  In such a case, he may make a second blend fraction which is held separately during aging for observation.  He may at a later date reconsider the final bottling blend for inclusion of this separate lot.
