The Crane Assembly
Strawberry preserves leap from the glass initially, followed by a bouquet of floral aromatics: lavender, violets and roses. Rich earthy notes of freshly plowed soil, fresh rain on warm granite and petrichor. Spicy, but not a peppery spice, more of a star anise spiciness, tart raspberries and sweet plouts, with a very long, dusty finish of strawberry cream, vanilla and caramelized sugar that lingers…smooth and luscious!
USA, California (Napa)

The Zinfandel has been continuously farmed from Dr. Crane's Vineyard in St. Helena since 1885. This wine deliciously shows off the skills of Dave Phinney & Kevin Fox.
