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 Petite Sirah with a touch of Zinfandel was aged 4-6 months in French oak. It shows aromas of ripe plum, blueberries and mocha, followed by
flavors of blueberry compote, plum, cocoa and vanilla. This full-bodied wine has an elegant tannin structure and balanced acidity that leads to a long finish. This 2013 was rated 95 points, Gold Medal in the California State Fair Wine Competition.
