The Crusher wines are the product of a partnership between two established Californian winemaking families, the Sebastiani and Wilsons. 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. 

Tasting Notes

This is truly a blockbuster red! Aromas of wild blueberries, black licorice and plums intermingle with sweet vanilla toasty notes from aging in a combination of French and Hungarian oak. The addition of 6% Pinot Noir adds a nice bright cherry fruit component. Pair this full red with rack of lamb, olive tapenade on grilled bread or a piece of rich, dark chocolate cake.

Method

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.
