el Coco

2021 G.B. Crane Vineyard el Coco

The 2021 el Coco opens with aromas of juicy framboise, ripe strawberry, bramble and musk within a toasted French oak frame. A rich entry of black plum, darker toned fruits and crushed gravel is complemented by some bright, freshness of Bing cherry and floral notes through the length of the palate and finish. A balancing acidity and pleasing tannins lead to a lifted close of satiating white pepper.

2020 G.B. Crane Vineyard el Coco

Benefiting form a warm to hot growing season and a reduced crop of small, concentrated berries we were able to pick in early September. Our newest release is a deep, dark and brooding blend of 71% Old Vine Zinfandel and 29% Petite Sirah. 

The 2020 el Coco sits in the glass with a deep mauve and neon rim, opening with aromatics of fruits on the darker spectrum - black and blue berries muddled with cacao - and a hint of lit palo santo. A confluence of feeling on the palate, the entry is voluptuous, layered and specific, with dripping ripe black plum that retains its acidity along with fresh morel and bresola, continuing into an appealing finish of baking chocolate. Closed in its youth, an introduction of air with a decant would allow for the wine to open and show the nuance and complexity hidden within.

2019 G.B. Crane Vineyard el Coco

Harvested between the 27th of September and the 9th of October, we were blessed with a superb growing season. Early spring rains provided the backbone for wonderful shoot growth and fruit set that was followed by a long, dry summer with minimal heat spikes. 

The 2019 el Coco pours a rich and dark garnet with a purple tint in the glass. Aromatically, the wine is boisterously expressive with notes of violet, lilac, blackberry, dark roses, supple leather and exotic spices. An energetic entry that is both elegant and vibrant, the palate is rife with notes of black plum, black cherry, currant, ripe raspberry and a touch of vanilla. Soft tannins abound with palate-coating density resulting in a luscious finish that lingers.

2014 - el Coco

Aromatics, abound and complete, the 2014 el Coco is replete with a wide spectrum from boysenberry jam and black plum to candied raspberries and nutmeg. The palate is ripe with dark stone fruits, blueberries, a hint of meatiness and confectionary orange, akin to mandarin encased foie gras. With just enough tannin to bind the flavors together. The wine finishes elegantly with a salivating savoriness that lingers.

2012 - el Coco

A color spectrum of deep garnet with a vestige of ruby on the periphery fills the glass. Deep, brooding aromatics of wild berry laced with ripe boysenberry is immediately present leading to mineral notes, toasted herb and a sprinkling of oak. Upon entry, the wine layered with concentrated, densely woven fruit. The mid palate reveals pure flavors of blueberry, raspberry jam, chaparral, and spring flowers supplanted with a lively vein of minerality. A long, lingering finish with subtle, refined tannins adds ideal complexity and pedigree.
