Croze Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
CROZE Cabernet Sauvignon grapes come from this Rutherford vineyard, which is located at Bella Oaks Lane on the west side of Highway 29 planted on the famous "Rutherford Bench." Displays classic Rutherford notes with a dusty elegance and complexity. This wine is rich with a balance of red and dark fruit character along with all the earth aroma's that make Rutherford such a special place for Cabernet. The aromas are reminiscent of an early morning stroll through a briary blackberry patch. on the finish there are spice notes of licorice and anise with a subtle cigar box charm. With firm but subtle tannins, this is approachable now, but will age gracefully for many years.
