The 2018 Crown Point Relevant is our introductory wine to Crown Point Vineyard. All estate grown, it showcases incredible freshness and fruit character from our young vines. A large part of the blend is given to Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings spice, tones of cassis, violets, and bay leaves. Cabernet Franc brings a delicate and soft character to this wine and is completed with a touch of Petit Verdot that brings tension and density.

Functioning as the second wine of the estate (meaning younger vines and blocks that didn't make the selection for the top cuvée), the 2018 Relevant checks in as 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot that spent 22 months in barrel. Beautifully pure cassis, violets, flowery incense, and spice notes all emerge from this beauty, which is soft, supple, layered, and just impossible to resist. It's an opulent, sexy wine that certainly doesn't taste like a second wine at this point.

Creamy aromas of blueberry, cassis, caramel and fudge meet with floral hints of violet and a subtle savoriness the nose of this blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. It's suave and lavish on the palate, loaded with jammy black-fruit, caramel and chocolate-mousse flavors, with a touch of espresso bean providing balance on the finish.
