About the Winery:
Crescere Wines was founded in 2016 by the Reynoso family in collaboration with renowned winemaker and Bordeaux native Philippe Melka.
Every Crescere wine is created using techniques, both old and new, that highlight their sites of origin and pure varietal expression. Each wine offers those seeking both authenticity and discovery an opportunity to enjoy some of the best expressions of Sonoma’s diverse terroir.
From its alluring deep garnet to its expressive aromas of dark fruit and violets, this wine is endowed with refinement and definition by sourcing from the first rate sites within our hillside vineyard. The choicest site within our hillside vineyard, the Lydian block provides boulder like geometric tannins and wide shoulders upon entry. A core of succulent dark plum and black currant cover the palate with harmonious accents of tobacco and gunpowder that embrace the medium-long finish across fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity.

Ratings & Reviews
97+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"A rich, incredibly powerful wine that has sensational notes of black currants, high class smoke tobacco, chocolate, and leafy herbs. With remarkable purity, building tannins, and a great, great finish, it’s going to keep for 20-25 years.
