Cruse Wine Company Alder Springs Tannat, 2017
Tannat is a strong grape with tough tannins and deep dark hues. Cruse has wrangled this beast of a grape into a deliciously balanced and striking example of elegance.
100% Tannat from the impeccably farmed Alder Springs vineyard in Mendocino County. It’s a young vineyard, planted at a high elevation on a steep southern slope. The combination of elevation and distance from the coast allows the Tannat to fully ripen, softening its rough edges.
