1 Post, 2013

For Charlie and Pam, 1 Post symbolizes more than a landmark San Francisco address.  In that iconic building, over two decades ago, the Crocker & starr partnership was seald with a handshake.  A meeting of the minds that created an historic 'bridge' between San Francisco and Napa . . . 1 Post - a small lot 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the estate's heritage vineyard blocks . . . celebrates the genesis of Crocker & Starr.

Tasting Notes

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon ‘1 Post’ is composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon heritage clones from Block 1 and Block 2.  These unique grapes create a wine with symmetry, concentration and elegance.  This wine immediately pops with notes of dark Bing cherries, graphite, incense, anise flowers, and sandalwood.  As oxygen starts to infiltrate the glass, aromatics of violets, rose petals, and tobacco pleases the senses.  The palate offers a plush and seamless transition from the first sip to the lingering finish.  Soft and smooth chocolate tannins play harmoniously with layers of black cherry compote, vanilla, cedar, and hints of star anise spice.  The balance of acid, tannin, and beautiful fruit will let this wine age gracefully for years to come.
