Wine Spectator #9 Wine of 2021
95 Points, Wine Spectator
Our flagship 2018 Dr. Crane Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromatics of ripe black cherry, dried orange peel, and Mediterranean herbs. Silky upon entry, this wine is full-bodied and broad with mouth coating polished tannins. Showing grace and power, the winemaking style is ripe yet restrained – a bottle to enjoy now with proper decanting, but also one that will age for decades. The finish is persistent, with notes of dark chocolate and dried thyme lingering long after the last sip.
