From the Winemaker

"Our members have heard me say this before - Crane Creek Cuvee is my earthquake wine. It's the first bottle I am grabbing when I dive under the table! Seriously though, this wine is my baby and I often find myself daydreaming about enjoying a bottle with my husband, Ken." - Jennifer Higgins

Tasting Notes

It is always exciting to release a new vintage of Crane Creek Cuvee. From a winemakers' perspective, Crane Creek represents the best Bordeaux blend we produce from each vintage. Greater than the sum of its collective parts, the 2017 incorporates all five Bordeaux varietals but with 80% Merlot leading the charge. On the nose, the aromatics deliver nuanced pomegranate and marionberry character with a touch of all spice and violets. Beautifully rich flavors envelope the palate with olallieberry, boysenberry, dark cherry and toasted cocoa. The finish is defined by texture and balance with a lingering finish.
