Ruby red in color, this wine opens with rich Bordeaux blend aromas of black plum with undertones of bay leaf, dried tobacco, pencil lead, and wet gravel. The palate reveals an ongoing personality of Cabernet tempered by Merlot and rounded out with a touch of Malbec. The wine shows loads of dark ripe fruit, round sweet tannins, and a full concentrated finish.
Dark Ripe Fruit
Craig’s was conceived by Craig Hall as an unconventional, appealing red blend to enjoy every day with family and friends. This wine is made in limited quantities and allows us to experiment with blending wine varieties and vineyard sources, playing up the most unique and captivating qualities of every vintage.
|Varietal Composition||59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 2% Malbec|
|Barrel Aging||22 Months in 60% New French Oak|

As a consequence, vineyard crews worked even more diligently during verasion thinning the clusters to maintain even ripening. The growing conditions, attention to detail in the vineyards, plus a final pass through optical sorting equipment at the winery make the quality of the vintage extremely high.|
