G.B. Crane Vineyard 'El Coco' Red 2016 - K. Laz Wine Collection

As the master of blending grape varieties into seductive offerings, this 2016 marks the fifth vintage of El Coco Red for Vintner/winemaker Dave Phinney and winemaker Kevin Fox. They have produced a silky rich Red that is a blend of 62% Old Vine Zinfandel, 32% Petite Sirah, 6% Merlot. They barrel aged them separately for a year before blending them to into the final offering which offers bold fruit, firm structure yet with a silky texture. "Decadent and rich, the nose opens with ripe boysenberry, blackberry and dark chocolate with a touch of aromatic nuance—forest floor and a satiating minerality. The entry is expansive and weighty with dark berries, ripe stone fruits, a hint of Bing cherry with a long chain of white pepper. The complex finish is lengthy with soft, supple tannins stemming from the high percentage of new French oak." – Kevin A. Fox
