Food Pairings for The Crusher Petite Sirah
External Reviews for The Crusher Petite Sirah
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.
Rich, dark aromas of blackberries, violets, and crushed white pepper invite one into this Clarksburg appellation Petite Sirah. A jammy array of blackberry and black cherry flavors dominate the palate, complemented by hints of vanilla, sassafras, and exotic oaky notes that linger through the finish. Full-bodied, with rich mouth-filling tannins, the wine displays a multi-layered depth and complexity that invites lingered contemplation and enjoyment. This wine will pair nicely with grilled meats, savory pastas like butternut squash ravioli with a brown butter sage sauce, or even dark chocolate.
