2020 G.B. Crane Vineyard el Coco
Benefiting form a warm to hot growing season and a reduced crop of small, concentrated berries we were able to pick in early September. Our newest release is a deep, dark and brooding blend of 71% Old Vine Zinfandel and 29% Petite Sirah.
The 2020 el Coco sits in the glass with a deep mauve and neon rim, opening with aromatics of fruits on the darker spectrum - black and blue berries muddled with cacao - and a hint of lit palo santo. A confluence of feeling on the palate, the entry is voluptuous, layered and specific, with dripping ripe black plum that retains its acidity along with fresh morel and bresola, continuing into an appealing finish of baking chocolate. Closed in its youth, an introduction of air with a decant would allow for the wine to open and show the nuance and complexity hidden within.
