The Crusher Wilson Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a medium brick red hue with a tint of violet. It unfolds with rich aromas of blue fruit - like boysenberry, with an undercurrent of ripe cassis and cedar notes. The palate is sappy and ripe with French oak vanilla and cherry fruit flavors. The tannins are soft on the mid-palate and firm on the finish, providing an opportunity for short term aging.

  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

This dark red brick-colored wine has enticing aromas of raspberries and plums with the signature Wilson Vineyards spice. Lively dark fruit comes through on the palate with a focused dry blackberry profile, full of secondary nuances. There is a great deal of background complexity to this wine, with notes of fresh coffee and dusty, sweet leather- dark, rich flavors that give this wine a bold, masculine character.The final balance between dark jammy fruit and dusty, earthy dryness is both alluring and satisfying. A full-bodied Cabernet, the finish is long with a core of well-ripened tannins.
