The Crusher Red Blend is a glossy red in the glass with vibrant aromas of dark red raspberry, blueberry cobbler, fresh cranberry and sweet vanilla notes. The aromas ring true on the 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 varietal in this blend imparts something unique giving the wine an overall crowd-pleasing appeal.
The Crusher Red Blend always presents a high price to quality ratio. And 2016 is no exception.
