It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and an earthy nose with kirsch, black berries, cassis and baking spices plus cigar hints. The palate is medium to full-bodied, plush, intense and earthy, finishing long and spicy.- LPB

From a gem of a vineyard in St. Helena and a mix of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Syrah, and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Crane Vineyard Estate offers a fresh, complex bouquet of plums...   From a gem of a vineyard in St. Helena and a mix of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Syrah, and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Crane Vineyard Estate offers a fresh, complex bouquet of plums, blueberries, gravelly minerality, and incense. It's more focused and streamlined compared to the Three D release (which is a 2015), has terrific purity of fruit, medium body, and good length. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years.

Woody cedar, pencil and oak lead to strong components of dried herb and black currant, the texture grainy and possessed of lasting grip. VIRGINIE BOONE
