The Crane Assembly Disciples 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||The Crane Assembly|
Strawberry preserves leap from the glass initially, followed by a bouquet of floral aromatics: lavender, violets and roses. Rich earthy notes of freshly plowed soil, fresh rain on warm granite and petrichor. Spicy, but not a peppery spice, more of a star anise spiciness, tart raspberries and sweet plouts, with a very long, dusty finish of strawberry cream, vanilla and caramelized sugar that lingers.... smooth and luscious!
Dense and ultra-ripe, with baked cherry, grilled anise and spice flavors that finish with slightly grippy tannins. Zinfandel, Petit Sirah, Charbono, Grenache, Syrah and Merlot. Drink now through 2027. 5,549 cases made.
