Winemaker Notes

The 2015 Crown Point Cabernet Sauvignon is a sophisticated and elegant expression of the estate. Hallmark aromas of savory spices, ripe blackberry, black plum, and dried violets lead to a refined mouthfeel. This wine’s sense-of-place is expressed on the palate through a tightly woven core of black currant, graphite, and cigar box notes framed by polished tannins. The finish is rich, long, powerful and yet harmonious. Drink with confidence now through decades to come.

Wine Enthusiast
This winery is focused on setting a new benchmark for what Cabernet Sauvignon from Santa Barbara can be, and this bottling is its best yet. Beautifully layered aromas of black cherry, baking spice, star anise and crushed slate lead into a roasted palate of black plum and chai spices, with acid that carries into the finish.

The 100% varietal 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon was brought up in all new barrels as well, and it too as integrated its oak beautifully since I tasted it from barrel last year. It’s inky colored and has a sensationally pure bouquet of crème de cassis, graphite, toasted spices, and crushed rocks. Possessing a touch of St. Julien in its minerality and pure Cabernet Sauvignon character, this rich, full-bodied beauty has a stacked mid-palate, sweet tannin, and a great finish. It’s a brilliant wine and up with some of the best Cabernet Sauvignons to come from this region.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One-hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is opaque garnet-purple in color and opens with savory notes of charcuterie, sautéed herbs, tapenade and truffles over a core of crème de cassis, lilacs, dark chocolate and tobacco. The palate is full, firm and grainy with bags of savory black fruits, finishing long and with a compelling mineral note. 197 cases produced.

Roger Bower, the owner and visionary behind Crown Point, purchased the property in Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA in 2012 after recognizing its potential to produce world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. Nestled in the Eastern-most foothills of this transverse valley, Crown Point has a distinct terroir which is perfectly suited for the Bordeaux varieties. Philippe Melka and Michel Rolland are the consulting winemakers and share Roger's vision for producing estate wines to rival the best in the world. Simon Faury, formerly of Merryvale, Harlan Estate, and a native of the Northern Rhone, is the head winemaker. Simon trained in Bordeaux at several First Growth Estates, as well as at top estates in Barolo, Mendoza, and Australia. Simon has his Master’s Degree in Viticulture and Enology from The University of Bordeaux. Juve Buenrostro has managed their vineyard in Happy Canyon for twenty years. This remarkable team produces hand-crafted small lots of all five Bordeaux varieties from the estate to create two Grand Vins: Crown Point Cabernet Sauvignon and Crown Point Estate Selection. The wines are made in the vineyard and spend extended time in the cellar before release. Each wine is a unique expression of the vintage and meticulous selection at every stage. The results are rich, concentrated, voluptuous and regal wines of depth and character unrivaled in the area and in California. Crown Point wines are approachable today, yet will age gracefully for many years to come. Humbled by the extraordinary press that the wines have received since the inaugural release in the Fall of 2016, the quest for greatness continues.

 The Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara American Viticultural Area where the east-west running Santa Ynez mountain range intersects with the north-south San Rafael mountain range. The east-west transverse mountain range is geographical anomaly in itself, and only one of a few in the world. While Happy Canyon sits as little as 12 miles to the north of the Pacific Ocean as the crow flies, the west-to-east running mountain range protects the vineyards from direct oceanic influence, but also traps the heat of the Santa Ynez Valley during the day. Cooling breezes and a fog-rich marine layer also roll through the canyon in the late afternoon and early morning, creating a wide temperature swing between daytime highs and nighttime lows. Their location is unique in that they do not experience the heat spikes felt in the North-South running Napa Valley.

 Happy Canyon’s warm micro-climate is the perfect home for Bordeaux varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as many Rhône varietals. The soil, a mixture of loam and clay loam with interspersed cobbles, is high in mineral levels while low in nutrients, resulting in small vines and very low grape yields—a circumstance that results in concentrated flavors and excellent terroir expression.

On the eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley, the rolling hills of the tiny Happy Canyon AVA produce top quality reds from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and whites from Sauvignon blanc. The region’s low-nutrient soil grows smaller vines and in turn, higher quality wine grapes.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
