Dave Phinney, who brought to us his great wines under Orin Swift - think Papillon, Mercury Head and Prisoner - became co-founder of G.B. Crane Vineyards, a heritage vineyard located in St. Helena's west bench. It is a true testament to Dave and winemaker Kevin Fox's ability to making powerful Reds. This 2017 comes from Morisoli Vineyard in Rutherford and Milat vineyard in St. Helena and is comprised of 64% Zinfandel, 18% Petite Sirah, 13% Grenache and 5% Syrah. They consider these vineyards to be like disciples of the ancient vines of Crane, and some barrels from their G.B. Crane vineyard were included in the blend. "Energetic aromas abound with Rainier cherry and overripe loganberry flanked by hints of tomato leaf, green tobacco, white pepper and sweet Thai basil. Smooth and enveloping flavors of bramble fruits, a dark stone fruit core and vanilla creme emerge. Effortlessly, the wine transitions into a soft finish of blackberry, lavender and just a shadow of tannin." - G.B. Crane winemaking team
