The Crusher Petite Sirah 2008

By | August 23, 2009

The nice people at Don & Sons sent me a bottle of their 2008 The Crusher Petite Sirah. I tend to drink a lot more Old rather than New World wines, and generally expect Zinfandel or Bordeaux varietals from California, so Petite Sirah was intriguing.
The bottle was sealed with a Neocork bearing a fancy design, which came out easily enough. It was a dark, thick purple with positively muscular legs. It smelled of equally thick fresh crushed fruit with caramel.
It was just dry, with ripe, soft tannins and a medium acidity. It felt rich and rounded in the mouth and tasted of fresh blackcurrants and blueberries and loganberries with just enough vanilla fudge. 13.5% alcohol fitted comfortably into the mix making it a well balanced wine that would hold up well against a range of well flavoured foods.
It retails at around $13 which seems about right for a chunky red.
