The Crusher Red Blend is a glossy red color in the glass with vibrant aromas of dark red raspberry, blueberry cobbler, fresh cranberry and sweet vanilla notes. The aromas ring true on the juicy palate where the core of ripe fruit flavors work well with baking spice, vanilla and melted chocolate nuance. The 2016 harvest was a very strong vintage with ripe, fruit forward wines of good depth and character. The perfectly ripened Tempranillo in the blend, along with the judicious use of Malbec and Petite Sirah gives the overall wine a harmonious amount of spice, brambly fruit and rich texture that makes the final blend very easy to drink. Each of the varietals in this red blend imparts something unique giving the final blend an overall crowd-pleasing appeal. Perfectly ripened Tempranillo and Malbec come from the Heringer Kirtlan Vineyard in Clarksburg with the Petite Sirah coming from Lake Winchester Vineyard also from the Clarksburg region. In addition, the Cabernet Sauvignon is from Wilson Vineyards in Clarksburg while the 5% Merlot hails from French Camp Vineyard in the warm Paso Robles region.
