Handcraft Pinot Noir California 2010

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Hnadcraft wines are the brainchild of Cheryl Indelicato of Delicato Family Vineyards. What makes these wines unique is the blending in of different varietals with the main grape adding a twist to what otherwise might seem ordinary. DFV owns on of the largest vineyarsds in California's Central Coast so they have ample access to quality grapes, particularly Pinot Noir. Here, 76% Pinot Noir is spiced up with 9% Tempranillo, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Sangiovese and 3% Petite Sirah. The grapes are vinified separately and aging is in French and American oak barrels for 3 to 6 months. It shows a bright bouquet with strawberry, cherry, mocha and spice. Soft and succulent on the palate, it's a Pinot with pizazz.
