About the Wine

The Erikson & Caradin story began with the 2013 vintage when these two passionate wine lovers crafted a wine that was exclusively shared with friends and esteemed restaurants in the area. As the years unfolded, so did their ambition. In 2016, they obtained access to a greater quantity of fruit, increasing their production from 85 cases to 264 cases. And so, the dream was born.

The folks behind Erikson & Caradin know that soil, elevation, and climate are key ingredients in making outstanding wine. When mixed with expert know-how, these elements create truly remarkable wines.

They are experts in making wines that truly represent their unique terroir, which is exactly what winemaker Kevin Morrisey is achieving. With a rich background that includes working at Chateau Petrus, Stags' Leap, Etude, and Ehlers Estate, Kevin certainly knows his stuff.

Their goal is simple: To source the most remarkable Cabernet parcels from the most prestigious regions, setting a new benchmark of quality.

Erikson & Caradin Raptor & Crimson is an ode to Napa Valley's illustrious Napa Valley. The vineyard is located just across from the renowned Screaming Eagle vineyard. A truly pristine Cabernet Sauvignon.

This is a unique blend unlike any other. Erikson & Caradin's Raptor & Crimson Cabernet Sauvignon masterfully combines grapes from the prestigious Napa Valley across four exceptional vintages (2019, 2020, 2021, and a splash of 2022). This innovative approach allows the genious winemaker to create a complex and layered flavor profile, ensuring a truly unforgettable drinking experience.

Aging: in American oak barrels.

Tasting Notes: This non-vintage Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has an opulent bouquet. Ripe blackberries, dark cherries, and cassis mingle harmoniously, accented by delicate whispers of vanilla, cedar, and baking spices. This exquisite wine boasts a rich and velvety texture. Blackcurrant, plum, and espresso intertwine seamlessly, buoyed by impeccably integrated oak and supple, fine-grained tannins. A masterful balance of acidity imparts freshness and vitality, guiding towards a lingering finish adorned with nuances of dark chocolate and tobacco. This luxurious wine epitomizes the quintessence of Napa Valley's essence, delivering both depth and sophistication.
