Vineyards are chosen from a range of different areas throughout California that have the right growing conditions for each of the individual varieties. The resulting wines are made to be fruity and full in the palate, but also have a nice, smooth tannin structure. The individual varieties each bring something different and unique to the Crush Red Blend.
This wine brings juicy red fruit with nice mid-palate weight from the Merlot, raspberry jam flavors from the Zinfandel, and dark fruit and structure from the Petit Sirah and Tannat. Its blend of coastal California varieties results in a tasty, complex wine with lots of fruit flavors, some vanilla and mocha, and a long, soft finish. This Crush Red Blend is a favorite for enjoying with friends or pairing with a nice meal.
A wonderful wine, enhanced by such foods as pulled pork, Vietnamese-style pork sandwiches, or vegetarian stuffed poblano peppers.
