Fidelity Crazy Creek Estate Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
88% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. Bright cherry and spice aromas. Lively red currant, tomato leaf, and toasty mocha flavors that finish with firm but ripe tannins.
Cellared and bottled by Goldschmidt Vineyards, established in 1998 by Nick and Yolyn Goldschmidt in Healdsburg. They produce several brands besides the house brand: Forefathers, Boulder Bank, under their three daughters' names (Chelsea, Hilary, and Clinton), Pampano, and Fidelity. Their goal is to produce wines of power and finesse, incorporating cutting-edge techniques that are not able to be used in the corporate world. The 30-acre Crazy Creek Vineyard lies just east of the town of Geyserville in the renowned Alexander Valley wine region.
