2019 G.B. Crane Vineyard el Coco
Harvested between the 27th of September and the 9th of October, we were blessed with a superb growing season. Early spring rains provided the backbone for a wonderful shoot shoot growth and fruit set that was followed by a long dry summer with minimal heat spikes. Overall, the wine offers plush, well integrated tannins that commingle seamlessly with inense fruit characteristics, providing a generous window of opportunity to enjoy our 2019 el Coco in its youth or over the next 10 years.
The 2019 el Coco pours a rich and dark garnet with a purple tint in the glass. Aromatically, the wine is boisterously expressive with notes of violet, lilac, blackberry, dark roses, supple leather and exotic spices. An energetic entry that is both elegant and vibrant, the palate is rife with notes of black plum, black cherry, currant, ripe raspberry and a touch of vanilla. Soft tannins abound with palate-coating density resulting in a luscious finish that lingers.
