Handcraft Petite Sirah 2009

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Handcraft 2009 Petite Sirah, California 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. Aromas of blueberry pie, nutmeg and pepper lead to flavors of boysenberry, plum, blueberry and spice. This full bodied wine has a bold tannin structure and balanced acidity that bring a long rewarding finish. This big wine is anything but “petite”.
