Delicious Depth

2014 CrossHatch Depth, Santa Ynez Valley ~ Wine Review by Wines on the Range editor, Tony Marlow.

In the glass, this Santa Ynez Merlot/Cab Franc blend has a black center with pink edges and a translucent halo….

When I stick my nose in the glass, I get a sucker punch of blueberries with a fist-full of dried fruit and some dark chocolate covered strawberries ————> The nose on this lil number kinda reminds me of an Amarone with that dried fruit…. And I’m —–> INTO IT!

My first sip has a black cherry start that leads to dried raspberries and sweet oak…. The mid-palate is a lil dusty with more of the cocoa and blueberries that I got on the nose before bright cranberries give my tongue a pop…. The finish is silky-smooth with red fruit and a black pepper kick….

Hey guys, here’s another one from CrossHatch Winery out of Santa Ynez… You may be flashing back to an earlier review I put out on these guys and recall how hard I gushed over the wine…. Welllllllll ——-> they are 2 for 2 y’all!!!

2014 CrossHatch “Depth” Santa Ynez CA

91 Points ~ 2014 CrossHatch Depth

Wine Enthusiast gives the 2014 CrossHatch Depth, Santa Ynez Valley 91 Points in the July 2018 issue.

“Though just 40% of the blend with the rest Merlot, the Cabernet Franc drives the sensory experience on this bottling, starting with the tart cranberry, thyme and green peppercorn on the fresh, zesty nose. The palate offers more peppercorn along with bay leaf and forest moss, set against a red-plum backdrop.” – Matt Kettmann
