Another great Wine company that I’ve recently enjoyed (guilty of having a glass as I write this post) is wine from Hand Craft Wines. Cheryl Indelicato gives classic grapes such as Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon her own personal touch, adding a playful dash of Italian varietals as a nod to the traditional, vineyard-to-barrel field selections that found their place daily at the Italian table. These unique wines are built for outright enjoyment. They are memorable and delicious—reflecting style and distinction.
The Petite Sirah
Jammy fruit from beginning to end—starting with aromas of blueberry pie, nutmeg and pepper. In the mouth, ﬂavors expand to include boysenberry, plum, blueberry and spice. This full bodied wine has a bold tannin structure and balanced acidity that lead to a long ﬁnish. This big wine is anything but “petite."

I love this red wine because it’s sweet and so drinkable. I’d love to know what it pairs well with since that would bring out the flavor anymore. In a way it makes me want some peanut butter, so I wonder if it would pair well with Tai food.
