Crane Brothers Merlot - 2003(W-1022)

Crane Brothers Merlot
Fresh, Fruity Smooth & Elegant

Winery Story

Michael and Robert Crane and winemaker Al Perry have made great wines together since the 2001 vintage. Located in The Oak Knoll District of ... (more...)the Napa Valley, the nine acre Crane Ranch Vineyard is planted on bench land and hillside, above the valley floor. The unique microclimate of warm sunny days and cool breezy evenings, along with our custom hand farming, allow our Syrah grapes to develop intense flavor, color, and aroma.

Tasting Note

Dark purple ruby color, aromas of red roses, black cherry, mint and cocoa powder. Full rich flavors of raspberry, apricot and sweet vanilla.... (more...) Finishes long, with soft integrated tannins.
