The Crusher Petite Sirah 2013
Inky in color, our 2013 Petite Sirah is brimming with aromatics; wisteria blossom, cherries, and creme brulee perforate the senses. Dense flavors of milk chocolate, blueberry, and clove mingle harmoniously to create this deep, rich, and expressive wine. Spending nearly fourteen months in 90% French oak, the presence of a vanilla core is undeniable. Together these dark-fruit flavors, spice notes, and floral aromatics create a wonderfully refined glass of wine with a polished finish.
97% Petite Sirah, 4% Tempranillo. Vinted and bottled by Don Sebastiani & Sons. 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.
