    April 30, 2021 - 3 days in Napa: Arkenstone, Memento Mori, Maxem, The French Laundry, Christopher Tynan, Kinsman, Harlan, Vice Versa, Accendo, Fairchild, Macdonald, and a truckload of others (Napa): A barrel sample, and one that is all about yummy Crane goodness. If you’re a fan of this site, then this will not disappoint. Flamboyant and chewy-sweet fruit wash over the palate with notes of saturated black raspberry, black cherry liqueur, plum, and an intense floral element that instantly lifts the entire profile. Like the other Memento Mori barrel samples, this shows a decent hit of power and dominance on the palate. With this Crane specifically, the ripe fruit does well to absorb that sheer authority here and keeps the force in check. Gorgeous potency and vigor. 96+ points.

    April 22, 2021 - Barrel sample. Definitely a bit more over the top on the fruity goodness than the MM Blend or MM LPV, this shows impeccable purity and way more blue fruit character. Black cherry, blueberry pie and huge floral is the hallmark of Crane and it's very present in this edition. The silky mouthfeel, awesome freshness and massive depth and concentration can't help but make you smile. Not for the faint of heart and not what I would call a BDX lovers wine, but thankfully Sam gives it balance and it has the structure to age and get better for at least a decade or two. Like with the LPV, seems like a blend of 12 and 16 vintages. 97-99+
