Long a favorite of Craig fans, our Affinity release has evolved into a gorgeous estate-grown wine, now in its third vintage as a single-vineyard bottling from the La Londe Vineyard in the Mt. George foothills, just south of Stag's Leap. As a single vineyard release, we are able to capture the unique expression of this extraordinary site. Affinity is now farmed for higher stress levels, the cane-pruned 30-year-old vines bearing just 2.8 tons per acre, offering a focused display of the alluvial, stony soils on this hillside site. As with our other 2015 Cabernets, Affinity is startling for its sheer size and weight. The older vines deliver classic black raspberry, licorice, espresso bean and crushed stones in the nose and on the palate. The tiny yields are responsible for the intensity of the color and structure this year. The Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec help to give the Cabernet Sauvignon a lovely plushness and roundness in the middle. This beautiful wine should show well upon release, but a year or two (or a decade) of cellar time will help the wine show its best.
