Winemaker Notes

This is a Tempranillo-driven red wine blend that opens with plush aromas of tart cherry, raspberry reduction sauce and toasted cedar. Red fruit dominates the palate forefront with succulent boysenberry and red cherry juice flavors accented by cedar notes from the French oak aging. The oak nuances round out the palate, adding length and texture. This medium bodied beauty displays balanced acidity and finishes with notes of Dutch cocoa.

Pair it with Spanish paella, Cajun jambalaya rice, or braised chicken legs. Barbequed meats and vegetables are another perfect accompaniment.

An impressive effort, this is a New World red wine at its best—this wine shows explosive ripe fruit from start to finish. The Crusher Grower's Selection Red Wine Blend fills the palate with loads of ripe, black fruit flavors. Its accent of oak pairs it superbly with grilled baby back ribs.

The Crusher Wines are a testament to an enduring partnership between the winemaking tradition of the Sebastiani family and the Wilsons, a respected grape-growing family with deep roots in Clarksburg, California. Fittingly named for the point in the winemaking process where the fruit of one family’s labors literally gives way to those of the other, The Crusher wines highlight the vibrancy and beauty of the fruit produced in the up-and-coming Clarksburg appellation.

The vineyards just inland from the Sacramento River Delta, along the deep banks of the Sacramento River, comprise the Clarksburg AVA. The River Delta channels in cold air and fog from the Pacific Ocean creating a cooling effect in this area. Warm summer days quickly change to chilly evenings and make a great environment for grape growing. While a range of grape varieties grow here, Chenin blanc stands out the most, distinguishing itself in the appellation.

The Clarksburg Wine Growers and Vintners Association, made up of nearly 50 grower members and over a dozen wineries, has been working since the late 1980s to promote the high quality wine of its region.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
