The year 2014 provides us with a unique convergence of milestones for the Fess Parker Family: the 25th Anniversary of the winery, the 60th of the Davy Crockett films and the 50th of the Daniel Boone series. All those years ago no one could have predicted the indelible impact Fess Parker's portrayal of two legendary frontiersmen would have on American popular culture. He captured the hearts and minds of viewers in an enduring manner that has yet to be replicated. For 25 years the Fess Parker Family has worked to create a respected and enduring legacy in the winery. Our goal has always been to craft wines of exquisite quality and character, establishing lasting friendships along the way. August 2014 marks the anniversary of what would have been Fess's 90th birthday. We miss him dearly and remain committed to carrying out his vision and remaining mindful of the many lessons he passed on to us. In this spirit, we offer Crockett. Simply put, we believe it is the finest wine we have ever released.

Tasting Notes
Opaque purple, with a deep, saturated color. High-toned black and blue fruits, cinnamon, BBQ spices and smoked meat are abundant on the nose. On the palate, the Crockett has great weight, texture and length, suggesting that it will age well 4 to 6 years from the vintage date. Savor flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, dark chocolate, espresso and smoked vanilla.
Vineyard Source
100% Rodney's Vineyard from the Fess Parker Estate located in the Santa Ynez Valley from blocks J1, R & Q. Clonal selections were Shenandoah, Rockpile and Palisades. Harvested at 24.8-26.3 Brix at 0.8-2.1 tons per acre.
