The Crusher Pinot Noir Wilson Vineyard 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lightly aromatic on the nose with a lovely flush of herbal, cola and lightly floral aromas over light red cherry fruit that shows nice old wood and mineral nuances. This is a touch sticky in the mouth with gentle acidity and a nice base of fine tannins helping to add some tension. The flavors are softly wiry, clear with sour cherry and herb nuances all sweetened up with light vanilla and burnt sugar notes from the oak. The finish is rather dry and woody, but there is a lingering note of that attractively pale red berry fruit wrapped in the sweetness. Turns spicier with air. 84pts

  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
