 The thirty acre Crazy Creek Vineyard lies just east of the town of Geyserville in the renowned Alexander Valley wine region. Its old, low vigor vines consistently produce Cabernet Sauvignon with more power and depth than typically found in the appellation.

Tasting Notes

The color is bright and deep. Purple edges with deep red middle. The nose is immediately fruit driven. Ripe raspberries, black cherry and plum. In other words it smells just like a Cabernet grape. In the mouth complexity is the key. Lush ripe cherries and ripe blue berries on the front of the tongue. The mid mouth is all about power and richness. Comprised of dark plum and chocolate. The finish has supple round tannins with a long elegant finish. Hmm hmm hmm Drink now or over the next 10 years if you can wait that long!

Production Notes

Despite a warm February, the 2018 growing season started off much cooler than the past few vintages. A cool spring meant “bloom” lasted longer than usual, but fruit set was consistent. In fact, the growing season started with near-perfect fruit set which led to large grape clusters. Summer temperatures were moderate with fewer heat spikes than in recent years. Veraison started later as well. As a result, harvest started nearly two to three weeks later than in recent years, but this was historically more typical. Harvesting with cool mornings, as compared to the heat waves of 2017, was a true pleasure and far less stressful.

Winemaker Notes

Made in tandem by Nick and his middle daughter, Katherine, this very popular Cabernet Sauvignon has become a close family tradition over the years. The 2018 vintage marks a transition to an incredible new vineyard called Stonemason Hill. Located in Alexander Valley, this aptly-named site has large rocks leading up to a stone-walled terrace. Complex and elegant, this vineyard’s beautiful gravel loam soil with mature vines—many over thirty years old—is ideally suited for the style and winemaking techniques which have made this wine so successful for us. A proprietary name rather than a single vineyard wine, the Katherine Cabernet is perfect for casual dining and discerning tasters looking for an elegant drop with loads of personality and style.
