The Crusher Red Blend is a bright ruby red color in the glass with distinct aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, boysenberry and brown spice. The aromas carry through to the juicy palate with expressive flavors of brambly fruit, fresh plum, and melted milk chocolate.
The Tempranillo in the blend comes from the Heringer Vineyard in Clarksburg and adds raspberry flavors and a good mid-palate presence. The Petite Sirah from Lake Winchester Vineyard in Clarksburg and Mettler Vineyard in Lodi adds the darker fruit notes and depth in the overall body. The Zinfandel from Schatz Vineyard in Lodi gives the brambly fruit and spice notes on the aromatics while the Merlot from Wilson Vineyard in Clarksburg lends structure to the blend. Finally, the Cabernet Sauvignon from Wilson Vineyard in Clarksburg provides the backbone to the final blend. Each of these varietals imparts something unique giving the final blend overall appeal.
