A dark, jammy explosion of baked red fruit and blackberry, this is marked by its toasty oak and its subtle hint of bacon, benefitting from breathing for 10–20 minutes before drinking. Full in body and tannin, it has a vanilla-infused finish.
A meaty and oaky red blend of mostly Tempranillo (64%), with smaller amounts of Petite Sirah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, The Crusher sources grapes from a relatively cool area in Clarksburg. Fruity with cinnamon layers, this wine would pair well with hamburgers or pizza.
A pretty good wine in its own right, although it’s much darker and more full-bodied than a rosé really should be. Still, it’s dry and crisp, with raspberry tart, vanilla and sandalwood flavors.
