Deep purplish red and coats the glass. Layered nose with blueberries, minerality, floral, sweet spices, cassis, and black fruits. Medium plus (6.5/10) and full bodied. Rich and powerful palate with blue fruits, crushed gravel, cinnamon, and vanilla. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2032. (95+)

A nice reminder of why I’ve been stockpiling my allocation for the last 6 years. Perfect (albeit young) example of what Dr. Crane has to offer, and a total ‘happy place’ wine for me. Dark and powerful blue / black fruits, cacao, graphite, and spice with a wonderfully long finish.

3-hour decant. Black as night. Effusive aromatics. Black currant, graphite and a long finish. Probably my favorite Napa vineyard.
