Food Pairings for Handcraft Pinot Noir California
External Reviews for Handcraft Pinot Noir California
Gorgeous cherry, vanilla and strawberry aromas are followed by ripe black cherry, sweet spice, vanilla and chocolate flavors. This medium bodied wine is elegant, supple, smooth and balanced--delicious by itself or perfect with food. The finish is soft and lingering with a perfect integration of structure, fruit and spice.
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.
