The concept of ‘The Crusher’ wines from Don & Sons is grounded in the philosophy that the journey from the vineyard-to the crusher-to your table will capture the freshness of the region to bring you exceptional wines. Their 2011 vintage Rosè of Pinot Noir clearly captures this philosophy.
Sourced from the Merwin Vineyard in Clarksburg, the 2011 Rosè of Pinot Noir has fresh strawberry on the nose with apricot, melon and lime flavors. The finish is crisp and tingling; a medium body wine with a touch of acidity, making it well suited for the dinner table.
I enjoyed this wine after dinner with decadent truffles from Le Belge Chocolatier of Napa, but it would pair equally well with a spicy seafood dish, making this a very versatile wine.

Thank you to Winemaker Greg Kitchens, Don & Sons and Balzac Communications & Marketing for providing the wine; and to Le Belge Chocolatier for the truffles.

If you like Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 was really good.

I’m curious how you think this compares to the rosés from Provence.
Good to know the perfect wine to pair with truffles….mmmmmmm.
Put this one on my list! Thanks Eileen!
Hi Renee ~~ yes, you must try the 2011. Living in the desert you need refreshing crisp wines to cool you down, this one will do the trick! Cheers!
Looks like a great wine for the upcoming warm days of spring. Will put it on my shopping list and can’t wait to taste it.
Renee, I liked the 2010, but the 2011 is more my style, it’s more crisp, less creamy than the 2010. My husband and I fought over the last glass! That’s how good this Rose is. Cheers!
