Our wine tonight is a Cruse Wine Company tasting at Bond Street Wines downtown Spartanburg, South Carolina. This California winery is producing small batch table wines from fine NAPA valley vineyards.

First we started with the 2017 Chardonnay. Light and crisp, orange and vanilla nose, not overly buttery, nice mineral finish. Only 24 barrels produced, $42 a bottle.

On to the 2015 Tannat, expressive nose, dark fruited, medium tannins, medium bodied. Only 10 barrels produced, $36 a bottle.

Finishing with the 2017 Valdiguié blend, peppery nose, light smooth red, with a lingering light floral finish. Only one barrel produced, $36 a bottle.
