Our flagship Cabernet opens up with notes of blackberry, black cherry, licorice, and espresso bean. This full bodied wine has a powerfully structured periphery showcasing refined tannins that frame a dense juicy core. Robust and elegant at once, this wine embodies the delicate balance of finesse and opulence. As it opens, spearmint and dark chocolate appear. Very lightly fined and bottled unfiltered, this Cabernet is a true expression of our Dr. Crane Vineyard site.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Crane Vineyard, made up of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot, is deep garnet-purple in color with a youthfully mute nose with notes of dusty earth, cinnamon stick, cedar chest and garrigue over a core of blackberries and kirsch. Medium to full-bodied with firm, grainy tannins, it has a good core of muscular fruit and a long, earthy finish. Give it 2-3 years in bottle and drink it over the next 15+.

Young and herbal, with just enough savory herb and berry flavors to titillate your senses. Drinks well already but should gain. Drink now through 2032.
