||Handcraft 2011 Petite Sirah, California
Winner of 3 Bronze Medals and one Silver medal from the Los Angeles Wine & Spirits Competition, San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and more.
HandCraft Artisan Collection wines celebrate the California home and Italian heritage of third generation winery proprietor Cheryl Indelicato. She gives classic grape varieties her own personal touch by adding a playful dash of Italian and heritage varietals as a nod to the vineyard-to-barrel field selections that found their place daily at the Italian table when she was growing up. The result is a distinctive, fruit forward wine. This blend of 82% Petite Sirah, 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Sangiovese, 3% Syrah and 3% Zinfandel was aged 4-6 months in French and American oak. The Wine Spectator selected the 2010 vintage as a Daily Wine Pick and Wine Enthusiast magazine made it a Best Buy, scoring it 90 points and saying "A really nice evocation of this variety, this is made in a soft style, with a Merlot-like velvety texture. But there’s nothing shy about the flavors: It bursts with ripe, jammy cherry, grilled pancetta, crushed pepper and sandalwood, and has a long, spicy finish. This 2011 is just as juicy, spicy and delicious.
