The Crusher Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
The 2012 Crusher Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a vibrant bouquet of black cherry, toasted oak, and captivating pepperiness. Graceful in the mouth, with a silky texture and lively dark berry fruit, flavors of plum and dark chocolate expand on the palate. Ten months of aging on 100% French oak imparts endearing smoky notes and a touch of sandalwood to this Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine finishes impressively long and showcases wonderful finesse and well-integrated tannins. Pair with a marinated London broil, porcini herb-crusted lamb, or the classic New York strip steak.
92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot. Vinted and bottled by Don Sebastiani & Sons. 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.
