The Battery Crush

Constant Crush Wine

Eola Springs Vineyard Limited Edition Grenache Rosé 2020

Nothing from Constant Crush holds a candle to the noble dry Chenin. This rose of Grenache is light and full of candied fruit - strawberry sour patch kids, cherry jolly rancher, maybe hot tamale too.

Pleasant and exactly what you’d expect.

Domaine des Frogeres

Les Clos Lyzieres Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2019

Crush for this beautiful Cabernet-franc. Crunchy, fruity, with fresh, ample and gourmet primary notes; we eat literally in the fruit. The aging notes carried by a light woody discreetly integrated bring fine spicy notes. It’s both greedy and serious. I'll be curious to tast it back in 5 years. A wine that will bring together demanding amateurs like neophytes. Great!

Coup de cœur pour ce très beau Cabernet-franc. Fruité croquant, avec des notes primaires fraîches amples et gourmandes; on croque littéralement dans le fruit. Les notes d’élevages portées par un léger boisé discrètement intégrées apportent de fines notes épicées. C’est gourmand et sérieux à la fois. Je serai curieux de regoûter dans 5 ans ce que ça donne. Un vin qui réunira les amateurs exigeants comme les néophytes. Superbe!

Clos Centeilles

Carignanissime de Centeilles Minervois Carignane

A very aerial expression of Carignan in carbonic maceration. The nose is almost intoxicating: black fruits, flowers, liquorice. The mouth is thin, light, silky. Crush again for this superb cuvée at a very reasonable cost. To drink a little refreshed.

Une expression très aérienne du Carignan en macération carbonique. Le nez est presque enivrant: fruits noirs, fleurs, réglisse. La bouche est fine, légère, soyeuse. Coup de cœur à nouveau pour cet superbe cuvée à coût très raisonnable. À boire un poil rafraîchi.

Domaine Vacheron

Les Romains Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2015

The Vacheron family have been leaders in the appellation for practicing organics and biodynamics since the early 2000’s and generally follow non-interventionalist wine making techniques. Their dedication is evident in the beauty and expression of terroir in their wines. “Les Romains” is a single vineyard planted about 40 years ago on 100% Silex. Popped and poured; consumed over 2 days and it was delicious on both. In the glass, it appears a very pale straw color with medium viscosity. Medium+ intensity. Remarkably fresh with bright lemon-lime citrus with some melon and rocks. One the palate, silex, citrus and minerals with an uncanny steel-like texture. High acid. Long satisfying finish. An uncompromising blend of energy and elegance. It’s a wine you want to crush…but there’s a sophistication about it that makes you reflect on how damned good it is. Age-able? Undoubtedly! But it’s going to be hard to cellar something this good. Beautiful wine! — a month ago

@Carter Pelham not sure I’ve been able to hold any long enough to see their sunset 😅. They certainly have the acid to drink well for 10+ years.

Antica Terra

Coriolis Pinot Noir

Willamette Pinot. High alcohol meets red cherry crush with oak aftertaste. Fairly dry and light. Aired it out for a few hours before drinking. A nice wine although I prefer a bit lower alcohol, more bold and higher acid. 14.0% (!!) — 11 days ago

Succés Vinícola

Patxanga Conca de Barberà Rosé Blend 2020

Recommended for your next 90 degree summer day - get the pork shoulder smoking, get the kids in the pool, crack this open, relentlessly crush, and enjoy the appealing, faintly funky nose, juicy watermelon/strawberry vibe, pleasant acidity, and total lack of complexity. — a month ago

Okanagan Crush Pad

Shane Taylor Dilettante Garnet Valley Pinot Noir 2017

2017 vintage. Certified organic Pinot Noir grapes from Garnet Valley which is the highest plantings in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia.
A nose of bright cherry, carrot tops and celery salt.
Ripe cherries and herbaceous qualities envelope your palette. Earthy and a bit smokey with crisp acidity on the finish.
This wine was built for grilled Pacific salmon or duck pizza.
In 2017 , Shane Taylor won British Columbia Sommelier of the Year. Every year’s winner is given the opportunity to make a wine with Okanagan Crush Pad Winery.
This is Shane’s legacy and a very nice wine.
