Vintage

We were challenged in 2015 by a warm winter, a cool spring, and a couple of summer heat waves. The last heat wave lingered throughout the first half of September, accelerating grape sugars and forcing us to scramble to get our crews scheduled. Fortunately, the quality of fruit was outstanding, showing magnificent color, deep flavor concentration, and perfect sugar and acid levels.

Wine

Another marvelous red from veteran winemaker Nick Goldschmidt. Fidelity is a Bordeaux-styled wine that is rich, smooth, and perfect for casual dining. Fidelity will surprise you with its great taste! Nick Goldschmidt knows all the great spots for growing Cabernet and Merlot in the Alexander Valley. He has farmed The Crazy Creek Estate for over 25 years and just loves the quality of fruit, vintage after vintage. In this blend, Merlot offers a round and silky mouthfeel, Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure, and Petit Verdot gives tannin, color, and flavor. Few winemakers offer such quality for the price.
