Crook & Prospect Vineyards

Cabernet Sauvignon 

The 1849 Gold Rush attracted waves of hopeful immigrant Prospectors in search of fortunes. With that came the nefarious Crooks preying on their hard work. Crook & Prospect represents the wild west of California wine.

Winery Notes:

Head Winemaker: Alison Crowe

Appellation: 100% California

Winery Notes:

Crook & Prospect California Cabernet Sauvignon is deep ruby in color and has intense, ripe berry aromas followed by flavors of blackberry, cherry, cocoa, licorice and a hint of leather. The bold mouthfeel, velvety tannins and super-long finish add up to a spectacularly bold Cabernet.

Winemaking:

We picked individual vineyard blocks with the perfect balance between ripeness, sweetness, acidity and flavor and then fermented them separately in stainless steel tanks. The lots were then oak-aged with a mix of French, American and medium/medium+ toast levels to integrate the cask aged characters with the robust berry aromas and flavors. Patient months of aging yielded “elevated” characters of leather, black tea and a little roasted fig.

Grape Sourcing:

This Cabernet was harvested from our Paso Robles and Alexander Valley vineyards while adding a little Lodi old vine fruit for a little more density to complete this luscious and balanced wine.
