Drinking Crow

Welcome to another Super Spy Sunday! Every Sunday we strive to bring you a very high end wine - at a down to earth price.

Today, you’ll save big, with 50% off on the dark, delicious and delectable Croze 2014 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine was the breakout hit of our recent Tasting Panel. One of our panelists declared the wine to be “remarkable, ready to drink - and a real steal!”. The rest of us on the panel agreed! This wine is incredibly smooth and oh so drinkable.

On the nose, sweet and perfumed aromas meld with bright Bing cherry, strawberry jam, candied plum, blackberry preserve, spice box, dusty bramble and dried earth.

On the palate, this wine is soft and elegant, with flavors that coat the palate with black cherry, black licorice, red licorice, cedar, toasty oak, cocoa dust and black pepper

This wine hails from the Oak Knoll District of the broader Napa Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area). Oak Knoll is located within Napa Valley AVA at the southern end of the valley floor. The appellation’s close proximity to San Pablo Bay results in a climate that is cooler and more moderate than any region in Napa Valley - other than the Los Carneros AVA - where Chardonnay and Pinot Noir thrive.

The Oak Knoll AVA has more area under vine than any other wholly contained appellation within the Napa Valley. The district is planted largely to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay.

Oak Knoll was officially designated an appellation within the Napa Valley AVA on April 26, 2004.

We offer you this wine with our bold recommendation today. You won’t find a better 2014 Cabernet at this price.
