Calling Dr. Love?! Like a teenager lined up outside the arena of a Kiss show, we were giddy with excitement to taste this one. Jeb Dunnuck agreed commenting: “Another wine that tops out my scale, this rock star vineyard continues to dish out awesome wine after awesome wine. A.O. Dr. Crane is full-bodied, powerful, multi-dimensional Cabernet that has building tannins and thrilling purity.” We loved it from the first sip and we’ve got a good feeling you’ll be shouting out loud the praise as well!

Another wine that just about tops out my scale is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Crane Vineyard. This rock star vineyard on the west side of St. Helena continues to dish out awesome wine after awesome wine. Blackcurrants, chocolate, tobacco leaf, and lead pencil notes all flow to a full-bodied, powerful, multi-dimensional Cabernet that has building tannins, thrilling purity of fruit, and a great finish. Nothing is out of place, it’s perfectly balanced, and shows the class, balance, and purity that make this vintage so special. Drink it any time over the coming 2+ decades
