The Crane Assembly G.B. Crane Vineyard el Coco 2015Winemaker Notes: Bold and concentrated, the 2015 el Coco is abundant in a ripe dark fruit continuum—black plums and boysenberry compote—and a hint of meatiness and toffee. Energetic and rich on the palate, the wine radiates with dark stone fruits, cinnamon and fresh Madagascar vanilla. With a nice balance of acidity, tannin and fruit, the el Coco begins to soften and finishes with length.

Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016Winemaker Notes: A dark, scarlet red color, with powerful aromas of sweet ripe cabernet grapes. Initial impressions are fantastically appealing, brooding to expansive textural sensations of finely grained cacao tannins. The whole of the wine is balanced, rich, expressive and impressively complex. The backbone of fine tannin and sweet ripeness is a carry over from perfectly mature fruit.
McGah Family Cellars Scarlett Zinfandel 2016Winemaker Notes: Dark and opulent ruby hues greet the eye as a classic Zin nose flush with red fruit, licorice root, bramble berry take center stage. Glass coating glycerin, a natural acidity lift, and a medium plus weight frame this garnet beauty throughout. The mid palate is loaded with mixed dark fruits, spice cake and root beer. An undeniable streak of anise right down the middle glides into to a 20 second plus finish. Full bodied and structured, a 1 hour decant works magic with this wine or lay it down for a few years to uncover hidden layers and complexities. Drink early or age for 4-6 years. 100% Zinfandel.
Poggio Bonelli Chianti Classico 2015Winemaker Notes : A genuine and characteristic expression of the Sangiovese varietal, Chianti Classico has a deep, dense ruby red color. Wild berries, sour black cherry, thyme and leather feature on the nose. Though bold and dry, the taste is softened by the delicate sweetness of the French oak.
