2002 CROZE Cabernet Sauvignon from DeConinck Vineyards, Longwood Ranch is our current Croze Cabernet release. This is the final vintage from their oldest block of vines. Each ancient vine yielded small amounts of tiny grapes with concentrated flavors and tannins. The result is a dark, garnet wine with loads of rich fruit. The wine is intense, with dark, garnet color and concentrated fruit flavors. It's like velveT in the mouth and lingers long after it is swallowed. This is not a wine to gulp, but rather one to savor. Very drinkable now, this intriguing Cabernet Sauvignon has the ideal balance for a graceful and long lived wine. This CROZE will stand up to a thick steak or roasted meats and is perfect with anything Chocolate. When you sip this wine, you are tasting history!
Limited production of 618 cases.
