Winemaker Notes

The Crusher's Petite Sirah is an inky violet color with vivid aromas of ripe plum, blackberry, fig preserves, and pomegranate. The pronounced aromas ring true on the palate with bold flavors of juicy plum, baked fig, and ripe blackberries. The wine is juicy, full-bodied with a rich texture, has smooth tannins with beautifully extracted color. It imparts an impressive flavor with a lushness that lingers on the finish. Petite Sirah is a powerful varietal and this one is no exception.

With its impressive flavor & finish, this is one of our favorite wines to drink alongside roasted leg of lamb or beef tenderloin.

Blend: 85% Petite Sirah, 6% Merlot, 4% Zinfandel, 3% Tempranillo, 1% Carignan, 1% Mourvedre

An excellent value, the 2015 Crusher Petite Sirah simply delivers what it takes to be delicious. Ripe, grapey, and full of primary fruit, this wine satisfies nicely from its aromas to its finish. Pair its richness with a savory lamb stew. (Tasted: January 26, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

The Crusher, California
Image of winery

The Crusher Wines are a testament to an enduring partnership between the winemaking tradition of the Sebastiani family and the Wilsons, a respected grape-growing family with deep roots in Clarksburg, California. Fittingly named for the point in the winemaking process where the fruit of one family’s labors literally gives way to those of the other, The Crusher wines highlight the vibrancy and beauty of the fruit produced in the up-and-coming Clarksburg appellation.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredible range of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from tiny, family-owned boutiques to massive corporations, and price and production are equally varied. Plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Valley area, while Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Each American Viticultural Area (AVA) and sub-AVA of has its own distinct personality, allowing California to produce wine of every fashion: from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate vineyard acreage. Sonoma County is best known for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône Blends blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with cool climate varieties such as Pinot noir, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, any wine lover will find something to get excited about here.

Petite Sirah

With its deep color, rich texture, firm tannins and bold flavors, there is nothing petite about Petite Sirah. The variety, originally known as Durif in the Rhône, took on its more popular moniker when it was imported to California from France in 1884. Despite its origins, it has since become known as a quintessentially Californian grape, commonly utilized as a blending partner for softer Zinfandel and other varieties, but also finds success as a single varietal wine. It thrives in warmer spots, such as Lodi, Sonoma and Napa counties.

In the Glass

Petite Sirah wines are typically deep, dark, rich and inky with concentrated flavors of blueberry, plum, blackberry, black pepper, sweet baking spice, leather, cigar box and chewy, chocolaty tannins.

Perfect Pairings

Petite Sirah’s full body and bold fruit make it an ideal match for barbecue, especially brisket with a slightly sweet sauce or other rich meat dishes. The variety’s heavy tannins call for protein-rich and strong flavors that can stand up to the wine.

Sommelier Secret

Don’t get Petite Sirah confused with Syrah—it is not, as the name might seem to imply, a smaller version of Syrah. It is, however, the offspring of Syrah (crossed with an obscure French variety called Peloursin), so the two grapes do share some genetic characteristics despite being completely distinct.
