Craig’s was conceived by Craig Hall as an unconventional, appealing Cabernet Sauvignon 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.
Opaque ruby-purple color. The nose opens with deep aromas of black cassis and blackberry compote interwoven with sweet tobacco, supple leather and licorice. The full-bodied palate is polished and layered with ripe fruit and well-knit tannin. This is an exceptionally balanced, and unhesitatingly drinkable wine.
|Varietal Composition||88% Cabernet, 12% Merlot|
|Barrel Aging||20 Months in 65% New French Oak|
|Vintage Notes||This near perfect growing season began in late February. Our Spring weather was mild, and allowed for extended flowering that produced very uniform grape clusters. Temperatures throughout Napa remained steady and warm during the majority of summer and fall, without any heat spikes, making for a long and unhurried harvest. The resulting wines are incredibly smooth and polished, with magnificent texture and color.|
