Our red wines are unique to most other reds because we do not use wooden barrels for aging; we use stainless steel tanks!
Let's think about that for a second...
For thousands of years wine was made in pottery or skins, so that the wine tasted fruity. The French started barrel aging in the 1400's thus turning fruity wine into something else.
Hmmm, wine that tastes like fruit or wine that tastes like a tree! Of course, real wine drinkers love wine any way it's aged!!
