The release of our Crane Creek Cuvée is eagerly awaited each fall. The blend echoes the famous, Merlot-driven, “right bank” blends of Pomerol and St-Émilion and it stylistically shares their power and grace. This elegant, refined blend has a complex mouthfeel and rich, bright aromatics with hints of ripe black cherries, chocolate, licorice and cedar. The impressive length of the finish gives this rich wine a balanced, luscious texture.

Alluring aromatics draw you to the wine in its youth. The elegant polished tannins promise great ageability. We recommend serving this wine with pan seared veal chops au poivre or oven roasted rack of lamb.
