“2006 was my first vintage creating our Crane Creek Cuvée and it was such a pleasure. The gentleness of the Merlot and richness of the Cabernet Sauvignon made it delicious upon release and with such excellent structure from good acidity it has aged gracefully – your patience is well rewarded!”
- Jill Davis, Winemaker

2013 Library Release Notes
This library wine has evolved beautifully since its release. The classic structure exhibits notes of spicy incense and tea leaf on the nose along with dark red fruit aromas. It displays integrated tannins and well-balanced fruit on the palate enhanced by an extended bottle aging. This wine can be enjoyed now or aged for up to another seven years.

Original Tasting Notes
Our Crane Creek Cuvée is a brilliant masterpiece of hand selected vineyard blocks yielding a refined, yet traditional right bank Bordeaux style blend. This wine is crafted every year as a limited production blend and made exclusively for our wine club members. Brimming with impressive aromas of blueberry, black plum and brown spice and finishing with plush, refined tannins. Licorice, chocolate and toffee mingle together to forge a wine of interest and longevity.

Wonderfully aromatic in its youth with layers of velvety tannins and structure to ensure optimum ageablility for years to come. This wine is precise, balanced and ultra rich and a great accompaniment to pan seared duck breast in a red wine reduction sauce, grilled filet mignon with blue cheese butter or a wedge of aged cheddar cheese drizzled with bing cherry compote.
