2017 Retaggio, Dr Crane Vineyard




Our 2017 Retaggio blend offers a delightful rendition of old world rusticity meeting new world opulence. Featuring notes of dried cranberry, Italian leather, black cherry and cola, the silky entry gives way to the impression of fruit sweetness. On the palate it is smooth, focused, and layered. As the wine opens up, savory notes of green olive and soy sauce come alive, along with a distinctly floral persuasion, hinting at dried rose petal. The tannins are soft and refined framing the core nicely, and the finish lingers long after your last sip.
