Kenneth-Crawford:
Our family cannot get enough of Kenneth-Crawford's secret gem from the Larner Vineyard, their ruby-colored Grenache Rose exudes vibrant tones of fresh berry fruit and floral notes. It has balanced freshness and persistence to pleasure the palate, since the vines benefit from intense luminosity, cobble filled sandy soils and cooling breezes that keep the acidity crisp.

Our family cannot get enough of Kenneth-Crawford's secret gem from the Larner Vineyard, their ruby-colored Grenache Rose exudes vibrant tones of fresh berry fruit and floral notes. It has balanced freshness and persistence to pleasure the palate, since the vines benefit from intense luminosity, cobble filled sandy soils and cooling breezes that keep the acidity crisp. Enjoy it as long as you can get your hands on it, if not we will. Unfortunately at this time we are unable to ship to the following states: AL, AR, MD, MA, MS, NH, PA, UT.

Kenneth Crawford 08 Pinot Noir


External Review
Vintage: 2008 09/12/2010

Tasting notes: From the ever-popular Babcock Vineyard comes this dark ruby colored wine, with dark fruit and black cherry both vieing for attention with Asian spices and that tell tale Santa Rita Hills earthiness, peppery, slate character. The aromas from the glass are confirmed on the palate and are wrapped neatly in a rich but mouthwatering blanket of sweet fruit and well-balanced acid. Fine tannins keep the finish long and firm enough to ensure 5-7 years of aging potential.
