Crane Brothers Merlot 2004

  • Area: California, Napa Valley, Oak Knoll
  • Grape: Merlot
  • Alcohol: 15%
  • Rating: Black 92 Dilettante 92 Mom 94
Description: Aromas of dark fruit, cinnamon toast, vanilla and a touch of road tar are followed by a rich and fruity attack. Silky and elegant in the mouth with lush flavors of blackberry, licorice, chocolate and tar. Feather soft tannins and a touch of black pepper make for a very long finish. This sexy little wine has great depth without being heavy. Decanting not required although some air enhances the nuances. So, so yummy.

Price: $27
