Our Crane Creek Cuvee is an exceptional blend of hand-selected vineyard blocks that are farmed to produce a style reminiscent of the famed ‘right bank’ regions of Pomerol and St-Emilion in Bordeaux. Tireless hours spent in the vineyard throughout the growing season, coupled with meticulous berry sorting at the winery, ensures that only the highest quality fruit makes it past the crush pad.

With a heady mélange of dark fruit and autumnal spice box aromatics that call upon fond memories spent fireside on a brisk harvest evening, the 2009 vintage shows a distinguished balance and elegance that is built to last. Brambly marionberry pie notes waltz with floral elements of rose petals and sweet violets for complex layers of flavor that reveal themselves as the wine continues to breathe. Supple fruit tannins and our winemakers’ deft hands with French oak meld beautifully with a vibrant acidity, lending a refined, velvety texture and richness to the finish that begs for another sip…and another…and another…
