The Story: Marilyn Crowley Crawford  was born and raised outside Falkirk, Scotland. She established CrauforD wine company in 1999 with intention to honor her seven centuries of Clan Crawfords and the love for Napa Valley.  Scots are known for quality and a wee nip...in Napa...premium wine.

 

The Vineyard: Only 4 rows of Cabernet Franc are planted on Crowley’s Oak Knoll, Napa Valley vineyard, so the production will never be very high!

 

The Wine:  This is one of the most amazing Cab Francs grown in the Napa Valley.  Only 48 cases (2 barrels) of this wine were produced.  The wine offers up a dark, inky color with aromatics of bold blackstone fruits, dark chocolate, a whiff of tobacco, and a touch of volcanic dust.  The wine is lush and rich in body with great complexity.  Full flavored with more black currant, chocolate, a touch of eartiness this wine is mutli-dimensional.  The finish is long and complex with silky grained tannins.  Sadly the production is very small – too small!
