Round and plush, with a slight saline edge. Very easy flow through the mid-palate. Not particularly complex in the mouth, or deep, but suave and satisfying. No overt signs of oak.

The Wine Advocate
Petit Verdot can rarely stand on its own, but Craneford's 2002 is an inky/blue/purple-colored offering displaying notes of incense, liquid minerals, black fruits, and damp earth. Dense, chewy, and enormous in the mouth, the question is, will the fruit hold and the tannin ultimately subside, or will the tannin take over? For now, I am optimistic as this stunning wine looks to be one of the finest Petit Verdots I have ever tasted.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #148



90/100
Wine Companion
Blackberry, prune and licorice in a sweet wrapping of chocolate and ripe tannins. A seemingly impossible variety to subvert in moderate climates.

89/100
Wine Spectator
Distinctive for its floral, slightly gamy red berry and plum flavors, which get a nice lift from juicy acidity as they persist into the fine-grained, lively finish. This could develop into something special with cellaring.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: 2004
