Food Pairings for Fetzer Red Crimson
"We gave winemaker extraordinaire Dennis Martin a clean palette to create a new wine. From there he went about crafting something remarkably Californian - wine that was smooth, socialable, well-blended and slightly non-traditional. Fetzer Crimson balances the best of Syrah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah into a pronounced oak profile with toasty aromatic components. He could enthuse about all the foods perfectly complemented by Fetzer Crimson, but Dennis thinks you should let it stand on its own first. This is a wine to be enjoyed with people." Winemaker's notes "A blend of Syrah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Sirah. Nearly opaque ruby-violet. The scintillating nose of roasted meats covered in dried berries is bound together by a rich dollop of oak. On the palate, the sheer gush of vanilla and oak tones is countered by thick, full-bodied flavors of briary red berries and sweet black fruits, with a touch of smoke on the backend adding complexity. A bold, dark, intriguing wine that coats the palate from beginning to end. The generous fruit, tannins, and acidity bode well for trying this with burgers, cheesesteaks, pizza, and barbecue...."
