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, wild blueberry, black licorice, and plum. On the palate, those fruit aromas come through with added vanilla and warm, baking spice. Pair with BBQ, pork dishes, or a selection of marinated olives.
Made from 82% Petite Sirah, 7% Syrah, 4% Tempranillo, 3% Malbec, 2% Merlot, and 2% Zinfandel, the grapes are sourced from their Lake Winchester vineyard in Clarksburg and their Schatz vineyard in Lodi. Aged for 10 months in a combination of French, American, and Hungarian oak.
