Michael Cruse has a unique approach to wine, both in what varietals he uses and how he produces them. The result is a collection of fantastic wines that are unlike anything else coming out of California. One of our favorites is this light-bodied blend. With pronounced aromas of red fruit and light tannins on the palate, this red woulkd be a suitable companion for prosciutto or seared tuna.
