Last Wednesday evening, I was among some of the lucky bloggers who got to participate in a live Twitter tasting with Thirsty Girl and HandCraft Wines. HandCraft Wines are the creation of Cheryl Indelicato, who has been in the California wine industry for practically her entire life. We tasted their 2010 Pinot Noir and Petite Sirah. The Petite Sirah was the standout of the night for me. Below are my tasting notes!
Handcraft 2010 Pinot Noir
Aromas of cherries and spice mingle together in the nose. The palate is loaded with jammy, red fruit, spice, and hints of vanilla followed with a silky finish. A smooth drinking Pinot that won’t hurt your wallet! (B, $13)
Handcraft 2010 Petite Sirah
An inky, mouth staining purple with intoxicating aromas of smoke, blackberries, blueberries, and pepper. The are bold, luscious tastes of plum, blueberries, black pepper, and dark chocolate. A really nice wine for the price! (B+, $13)
