“This monumental new blend soars forth with plum, blackberries, and zesty baking spices. Rich tasting and silky smooth, the opulent palate is ultra- expressive, delivering generous amounts of blueberry cobbler, boysenberry jam, and dark chocolate on the finish. For those who savor unabashed, full-throttle reds, this decadent, one of a kind gem seriously over-delivers for the price.’ - California Wine Advisors
 
Winery Notes: “The 2018 G.B. Crane Vineyard el Coco pours vivid violet and sits with a dark crimson core and a Black Baccara Rose rim. Awash with complex and changing aromas, the nose starts with ripe blue fruits and brambly framboise, then opens up to some creme de menthe and cigar box. Seamless yet broad on entry, the palate is rife with blueberry, black cherry and a hint of white pepper. Plush, effortlessly balanced and with round, soft tannins, the finish is the epitome of length; it builds and eventually blooms to a satiating note of dark pluot.”
