George Beldon Crane first established grapes on this site in the year 1885, making it one of the oldest vineyards in the Napa Valley. Although records are scarce, it was most likely planted as a field blend commonly known as mixed blacks. This field blend traditionally consisted of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignan, and a smattering of lesser-known grape varieties such as Alicante Bouschet, Mourvedre and Valdiguie. Of the eight acres in production, approximately four acres contain a mixture of G.

Cranes original plantings with newer (1930) plantings interspersed. This four-acre block has been continuously farmed for one hundred and thirty years. As well as the four-acre old vine section there is also a 1.6-acre block of Cabernet Sauvignon, a 1.4-acre block of Petite Sirah, and two rows of Merlot.

A group of friends with a common goal, to preserve this piece of Californias viticultural history and produce a wine that both represents and respects that history. 2014 was the third vintage of this vineyard under our care. Year after year, weve learned more about the nuances of each varietal, each row.

Yet again, the infamous drought suited our Cabernet Sauvignon very well. It was dark, concentrated and complexand that was just in the vineyard. During fermentation, even more aromas, flavors and textures started to reveal. Overall, the wine is classic St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon that is inviting and approachable young and will continue to evolve over the coming years.

The 2014 GB Crane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon opens with layered aromatics of overripe cassis, blackberries and plum. Shades of tarragon, sage and fragrant Californian chaparral follow closely. The entry is, as expected, rich and lush with a balanced mid-palate rife with juicy stone fruit, black cherries and traces of graphite, clove and licorice.

The soft, refined tannins bring the experience to a slow, elegant closeflavors persisting at length. Customer comments on their order such as "Please leave on back porch" or "Please leave at front door" will be ignored due to age requirements.
