Named for the variations of rock, loam, and clay soils found throughout the Crocker Vineyard, RLC is the embodiment of Crocker & Starr as a concept. RLC is the third distinctive estate Cabernet Sauvignon from our St Helena based Crocker Estate. The varying soil compositions in these vine blocks (east of our historic Block 3) yield generous and supple grapes which in turn yield a plush and classic Cabernet Sauvignon wine.
Made using the similar techniques as Crocker & Starr’s Estate flagship Cabernet bottlings, RLC is a study in unique terroir. Fans familiar with Stone Place’s signature dark, brooding palate will enjoy RLC’s supple tannic structure, red cherry fruit, and lasting finish. Rare is the opportunity to pop corks on an outstanding St Helena estate Cabernet Sauvignon for such an incredible price.
The RLC label was designed by celebrated Napa-based designer, Jim Cross, and reflects an artist’s modern interpretation of a 16th century woodblock print of a grapevine.
