The Crusher Grower's Selection Rose of Pinot Noir 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tons of fruit on the nose, full of cherries and strawberry with a little heathery/floral/herb/breakfast tea smoky top notes. Just a hint of leathery meatiness as well. Silky, really nice upright texture in the mouth with a nice touch of soft tannin giving the wine nice richness. This has just slightly noticeable residual sugar that really makes the strawberry fruit pop on the finish. A little spicy, strawberry seeds and even a hint of baking spice. Nicely done 87pts.

  To Don Sebastiani and Sons, family is clearly an important aspect of winemaking. While Don Sebastiani and Sons wasn’t founded until 2001, Samuele Sebastiani created a winery in 1904, and started growing the company, as well as the town of Sonoma. Over the years, the winery changed hands many times, but it always stayed within the family. By 2000, the winery was producing eight million cases of wine a year. However, at that time, Don Sebastiani sold many of the assets and kept only the family brand and the Sonoma winery and vineyards. Though he stepped down as CEO and Chairman in 2000, that wasn’t the end for him. In 2001, he and his sons, Donny and August, founded Don Sebastiani and Sons, eventually growing production back up to two million cases annually. Today, Greg Kitchens and Michelle McClendon, winemakers for Don Sebastiani and Sons, strive to produce high-end wine at affordable prices. They don’t just source grapes from California - they’ve also formed partnerships to create Australian and Chilean blends, further expanding the company’s reach and complexity. Read less
