Sweet dark fruits, chocolate, smoke - full bodied, finely balanced, velvety tannins with crisp acidity.
Tasting Notes: The Crusher Pinot Noir is a brilliant, ruby-red colour. Bold, fresh aromas of sweet morello cherry, dark chocolate and subtle pepper spice. This expressive wine is smooth and graceful on the palate with juicy cranberry fruit, black tea, violet flavours with hints of smoky oak. The wine is well-balanced with robust fruit, fine grained tannins and good acidity which leads to a flavourful and lengthy finish. The Crusher Pinot Noir was aged with 100% French oak for 10 months giving excellent integration.
More than 110 years ago, the Sebastiani family embarked on a winemaking journey, setting down roots in Sonoma, California. With passion, hard work and decades of pioneering in the wine industry now under their belt, a mission to deliver varietally expressive, premium quality wines sourced from the Golden State’s finest regions was born—introducing The Crusher. Named for the first, most precious moments in the winemaking process when grapes meet “The Crusher” and begin their transformation into a food-friendly, approachable wine.
