The Crusher Grower’s Selection Clarksburg Petite Sirah 2012, California 


My Rating 87 Points.   

Price $14. 

 

Beautiful ruby/purple in color with a wide dark purple rim.

Nice nose of blueberries, sour cherries, plums, light oak, earth, dirt, peppercorn, spices, licorice, chocolates and spices.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Fruity on the attack, and dry on the palate, with plums, cherries, sweet raspberries, earth, licorice, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices and peppercorn.

Nice finish with firm, grippy tannins and tart strawberries.

This Petite Sirah is drinking very nicely now, with nice balance and a great mouthfeel. I liked it by itself, but for many, the tannins will be too powerful.
I’ve had it before, and I’m glad it is still drinking nicely. A Good wine to pair with grilled meats.

Needs 45 minutes to properly open up.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
