Rober Randolph & the Crusher Petite Syrah

Friday night and it’s time to rock. Robert Randolph is a high energy pedal steel guitarist. He began playing the steel guitar in the House of God Pentecostal Church where the instrument is referred to as “Sacred Steel.” He says Stevie Ray Vaughn was one of the main influences on his musical style. He played in several of the Crossroads concerts organized by Eric Clapton and actually toured with the man himself. Also, check out his bassist. The guy can really lay down the funk.

I need more love:

Billie Jean:

Voodoo Child:

Louisiana Bayou with Dave Matthews:


Ain’t nothing wrong with that:


The March:

Goin in the right direction:

The thrill of it:

Deliver Me:


With Clapton, got my Mojo Working:

Robert Randolph calls for something with a bit of heft so I suggest a 2008 “Crusher” Petite Syrah. It’s a classic Petite, deep purple, almost black in color with a bouquet that explodes out of the bottle flooding your nose with the aroma of blackberries, toasted walnuts and roses (honest!). The palate is rich with dark berries, cherries, chocolate, and a touch of caramel. It has a soft, silky mouth-feel and a long finish. So, go get yourself a bottle and enjoy your Friday night dancing to the sounds of a heck of a pedal steel guitarist. Enjoy!
