CRAFTED BY TRADITION. INSPIRED BY LIFE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 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 distinctive, fruitforward wines that are easy to enjoy and share with others. Grapes were hand harvested in the cool of the night to retain every ounce of flavor before being swiftly taken to the winery where they were de-stemmed into small lot fermenters. After a brief cold soak, the must was slowly warmed, which enhanced color and flavor extraction. Once fermentation was complete, a portion was aged in a combination of American and French oak while another portion remained in stainless steel to provide the blending options for this bold and structured blend. We added a small amount of Sangiovese, an Italian varietal, to the blend to help soften and smooth out the tannins, add bright fruit flavor components and enhance the voluptuous layers. Robust aromas of cherry, blackberry, pepper and tobacco greet your nose. The layers of flavor that follow are nothing short of fantastic with hints of black cherry, clove, spice, currants and dark chocolate. This full bodied wine is rich and robust with round tannins that lead to a long and generous finish. Memorable. Alcohol: 14.5%
