Cellar Craft's original "Crushed Grape Pack”wine. Super-Tuscan styled wine vinted from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese and other native Italian varieties. Fermented on
crushed Merlot grapes.
A big, full-bodied wine with solid structure and bold fruit notes. Complex cassis, plum and cherry notes balance the bold tannins. French and American oaks contribute toasty vanilla and greater depth in this intense wine. Like all "Crushed Grape Pack”wines, a minimum of 6 months aging is required to begin to see harmony develop. A year is better and 2 years yield a very special wine for your enjoyment.
CRUSHED GRAPE PACKS
Cellar Craft uses over 12 pounds of virgin, varietal grapes to produce "Crushed Grape Packs” for true, on-the-skins fermentation in its Showcase reds. All of the natural skins and solids from variety-specific grapes are captured for extra extraction of aromatics, flavor, tannin, color and body during the fermentation stage.
Ready to bottle in six to eight weeks.
