We are excited to present our "To the Point" Red Wine, made exclusively for NakedWines.com. We want to thank the Angels for making this tasty wine possible, wishes fulfilled!
The Brass Tacks Red Wine is an ode to the traditional winemaking methods used by early California winemakers, where fruit from different varietals were blended together before bottling. Winemaker and proprietor Daniel LeFrancois and consulting winemaker Scott Peterson set out to blend Cabernet Sauvignon with Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, creating a rich, fruit-forward red wine best enjoyed in the company of good friends and hearty appetites.
Winemaker and proprietor Daniel LeFrancois and consulting winemaker Scott Peterson partnered together to bring Brass Tacks "To the Point" line as a way to showcase California at its finest. The blending process is one of the key elements of producing rich, fruit-forward flavors. It is because of the Angel's support that Daniel and Scott were able to carefully select lots from vineyards throughout California's premier winegrowing regions, where each region’s unique terroir adds their own unique layer to the final wine profile.
