The Crane Assembly Disciples 2015
Complex and evolving from first taste, unique aromas of granite, brambly fruit, mixed berry cobbler, forest floor and smoke open from the glass. More aromas abound; black plums and boysenberry compote that carry through to the palate that is lush, rich, big and brawny. The finish is lingering and persistent and the wine is definitely addictive.

Perfect summer wine paired with a fresh salad or marinated chicken straight from the barbecue.
