The Crusher California Pinot Noir 2017
The Crusher Pinot Noir is a brilliant, ruby-red color with fresh aromas of strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb and subtle pepper spice. This expressive wine is smooth and graceful on the palate with juicy cranberry fruit, black tea and violet candy flavors. The wine is well-balanced with robust fruit, fine grained tannins and good acidity which leads to a flavorful and lengthy finish. The Crusher Pinot Noir was aged with 100% French oak for 10 months giving excellent integration.
Our fruit is sourced from Clarksburg, mainly clones 115, 667 and 777 which are known for big, round tannins and distinct flavors.
The Crusher Pinot Noir gets along well with a variety of foods—invite a bottle to your next family dinner!
Blatant oakiness will be a turnoff for some in this full-bodied, boldly flavored and firm-textured wine. It shows sawdust and cedar aromas, a tannic mouthfeel and spicy flavors.
