A brute with an ear for opera. Sweet and brawny, casts a large shadow but speaks soft volumes.

An incredibly fruit-forward, lively nose of fresh Bing cherries, yellow plums, fig jelly, elderflower, and a touch of vanilla offers a hint of what’s to come. Big, deceptively sweet, and alluring upon first taste, Crux is a draft horse, wide in the hips with a steady, soft power and a tenacity of flavor that lingers for over a minute. Lavender honey, baked raspberries, dried orange peel, and toasted cumin are all slowly unveiled. This wine is completely comfortable in its own skin.

Vineyard Notes
2013 is a vintage that will surely produce some of the best wines our Paso Robles area has to offer. Winter 2012 saw lower than average rainfall which led to smaller more intense berries and smaller clusters in most varieties.
The machine-like predictability of the daytime heating and nighttime cooling was amazing and continued into late harvest, which was completed by the end of October. The near perfect growing conditions of 2013 will lead to exceptional wines, a truly remarkable vintage.
