Vineyard Notes:

These grapes came from Tenbrink Vineyards located in Suisun Valley just across the Easter Nills from Napa Valley. Here the daylight hours are just a bit warmer without the cooling marine influence of San Francisco Bay. Steve Tenbrink grew these luscious grapes especially for us.

Production Notes:

Croze Cabernet Sauvignon Port is vinted and bottled by Avatar Vintners' Winemaker, Gary E. Wooton. This is a handcrafted wine from crush to the bottle.

Winemaker Notes:

With the help of the weather gods, the grapes were allowed to hang on the vines until late November,well past the normal picking time. This increased the complexity and density of the fruit flavors. The grapes were crushed and left on the skins for one week before inoculation with alcohol-tolerant yeast. After a long, cool fermantation, winemaker, Gary Wooton, added Brandy to stop the fermentation at 6.5% residual sugar. Prior to use in the Port, the Brandy was aged in Oak for a year.

Food Pairing:

Enjoy Croze Port as an apertif, with a dinner of savory duck, or after dinner with dark chocolate, nuts and rich cheeses.
