Cruse Wine Co. is a small but very highly regarded winery in Sonoma making some top red blends, pet-nat and some of the best traditional sparkling wines in California. Owner/winemaker Michael Cruse is one of the most thoughtful and engaging producers in the region, continually trying new blends and refining his understanding of his wines.
The NV Tradition offers a striking interplay of textural richness and breadth buffered by vibrant acids that add freshness. Tangerine oil, almond, dried flowers and mint impart a strong savory character, but what stands out most about this wine is sheer vinous intensity. You will find a rich, beautifully textured sparkling wine that truly comes alive at the dinner table. Not to mention that the Cruse Tradition is one of the most compelling sparkling wines being made in California.
