The Crusher California Pinot Noir 2018
The Crusher 2018 Pinot Noir offers luscious layers of ripe cherry, strawberry, and fresh cranberry aromas. The bright bouquet rings true on the palate with loads of juicy fruit flavors along with subtle spice notes. Rose petal, black tea, and melted chocolate flavors work well on the medium-bodied palate with fine-grained tannins and well-balanced acidity. The Crusher Pinot Noir was aged with 100% French oak (40% new) for 10 months giving a strong oak presence withexcellent integration.
This hearty, robust wine is an outstanding value. It leads with light woodsmoke and black-pepper aromas over fairly concentrated and appealing black-cherry and plum flavors supported by light tannins.
