Winemaker Notes

The characteristic Clarksburg Petite Sirah varietal that compromises the majority of this wine displays dark aromas of wild blueberry, black licorice and purple plum. 80% of the wine was aged on French oak promoting notes of caramelized vanilla bean. The remainder of the oak is Hungarian, which enhances characteristic notes of gaminess such as mushroom and tobacco leaf. This deeply expressive wine fills the palate with flavors of blackberry jam and dried cherry, mingling effortlessly with cinnamon bark and molasses. The mouth-coating tannins add structure and complexity to this full-bodied Petite Sirah, while the 6% Pinot Noir adds a layer of plush, round and supple flavors. This wine pairs nicely with olive tapenade on grilled bread, rack of lamb marinated with aromatic herbs or even dark chocolate lava cake.

Tasting Panel
On the nose: grilled meat, chocolate and blue fruit. But the first sip is an indulgence of tannic blackness with hints of violets and blueberries...which seem to be sepping through that tannic wall in a gritty fashion.

This is everyone's red wine. Whether you are from the Old or New World, it does not matter, the generously flavored 2012 The Crusher Petite Sirah aims to please. Ripe and grapey in the nose and on the palate, the wine wraps around the palate with excellent staying power. I hear a bowl of savory beef stew calling me. (Tasted: April 7, 2015, San Francisco, CA)
