External Reviews for The Crusher Growers Selection Petite Sirah
The Crusher Petite Sirah 2009 is a deep, inky purple, with aromas of jammy blueberry, vanilla, caramel, and a touch of baking spice. Concentrated, soft fruit flavors of dark raspberry and blackberry sorbet are well balanced by notes of brown sugar and cedar contributed from the French oak aging. Well rounded with subtle secondary flavors as well, dark chocolate and cinnamon stick both emerge in the mid-palate. Big and full-bodied, the rich mouthfeel is enhanced by a solid backbone of tannins that finish soft, even in the wines youth due to minimal fining. The berry flavors linger in the finish, and balanced natural acidity makes you want to go back for another taste. With its moderate alcohol and excellent concentration, this varietal is clearly the flagship of The Crusher. - Winery
The nose of this inky purple colored wine is rich and complex with aromas of blueberry and cassis with a hint of spearmint. The palate is supple and tannic with lip-smacking caramel and French vanilla sappiness followed by a ripe cassis finish. The wine has balanced acidity and firm tannins and worth aging for a few years.
