The Crusher Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)
Conventional Learn More
The Crusher wines are the product of a partnership between two established Californian winemaking families, Sebastiani and Wilson. The grapes are sourced from Clarksburg, an appellation only 20 miles East of Napa Valley, near Sacramento where similar diurnal temperature fluctuations – cool nights and hot days, produce balanced and concentrated wines. Unlike Napa, land is still relatively affordable here, so the wines offer excellent quality and value. The Crusher wines undergo wild yeast fermentation, from yeasts naturally present in environment; these indigenous yeasts produce subtly nuanced wines and express the local terroir.
On the nose, aromas of black cherry, toast, and pepper. On the palate, lively flavours of blackberries, plums, and dark chocolate. Pair with BBQ fare, pulled pork dishes, or your favourite cut/preparation of red meat.
Made from 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petite Sirah, 4% Tempranillo, 4% Merlot, the grapes come from Clarksburg, Lodi, and Paso Robles. Aged in 80% new oak (40% American, 40% French) and 20% seasoned Hungarian oak.
