"Aromas of firm plums, dried roses and lavender comingle with cocoa and holiday spices. Brambly red fruit, muddled briar fruit and vanilla crème fill out a plush flavor profile. Layered, toasty oak lends tones of caramel, nutmeg, cardamom and allspice. This is a powerful and structured merlot with firm tannins that evolve to a long, velvety finish. Among the first vineyards planted in the John Anthony portfolio, the Crane Vineyard is producing fruit of consistently elevated quality and graceful age."
