The Crusher Viognier Wilson Vineyard 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lemon drop fruit with a touch of green herb, fennel, lime leaf, talcum powder and hint of vanilla adding complexity on the nose. Rather light in the mouth with juicy plum/ peach profile, but very floral in the mouth with admirable freshness. Finishes a touch bitter with a bit of apple seed bitterness offering contrast against the lingering fruit tones. 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

@the10cases Covent Garden. Nov 2013 Great classic clean Viognier nose. Lychee and some grassy notes. Hints of cinnamon and banana. Clean crips taste. Full body. Good moderate-high acidity. Apple and pear flavors and tropical fruits. Good moderately long finish. Overall good/v good.

huge honeysuckle aromas followed by hay, citrus, and honey flavors. Creamy in the midpalate, with a bright, zingy finish. Nice value at $13.

I have been looking for a Viognier of this quality since I tasted a similar wine in Canada. I will be seeking out this wine. Greg has much better descriptions than I can possibly match. This wine is exquisite. It was recommended by Snooth. I love this wine and will be seeking it out for some time. Thanks
