Don Sebastiani & Sons are leading the charge of value-conscious California wines with releases like the new The Crusher Cabernet Sauvignon 2007. A remarkable, single-vineyard designated Cab from Napa Valley (the Wilson Vineyard in Clarksburg), this medium- to full-bodied red is extraordinary for the price. Boysenberry, blueberry and cassis notes in both the nose and on the palate, these nuances mingle with vanillin oak, cherry, and spice notes for an exquisite, palate-pleasing wine.

A touch of Petite Sirah gives it a dark red, almost purple tint, and brings with it a rush of juicy, jammy blue fruit to boot. With only 8400 cases made, this wine will indeed go quickly. Avoid the rush and pick up The Crusher today.
