Cabernet Sauvignon, Dancing Crow, Lake County, California 2017/18
Regular price £19.35
Example of ‘cool-climate’ California – British winemaker – excellent value for money
Owned by Londoner Tony Cartlidge and his wife Sarah, Dancing Crow is an exciting addition to our growing American portfolio. Tony has worked in the Napa Valley since the late 1970s and his latest project sees a return to a more focussed production than his previous projects, as he and his team fashion only two key cuvées.
The Cabernet Sauvignon (blended with a small proportion of Merlot and Petite Syrah) offers moreish notes of dark berry and mocha on the nose, leading to a palate that is dominated by ripe cassis flavours. After spending 6 months in French oak, the wine develops a sophisticated structure that ensures this cuvee offers extremely good value for money.
