Cereghino Smith Winery - A Great Find!
Cereghino Smith is a small, artisanal winery producing hand crafted wines. Paula Cereghino's and Fred Smith's grapes are sourced from small growers in California and New York.
They do small, handmade lots. Small runs. And they are very nice quality.
They were recently featured in Chronogram magazine.

I loved this wine. A fabulous, dry, deep, robust wine. Very, very good. Prune and tea come through. Very nice finish. Excellent!

With good clarity, a dark rhubarb color and a sweet bing cherry nose, this Brunello Clone is bone dry, medium bodied, exhibits notes of cherry and mouth watering acidity. Aged in Canadian White Oak for 11 months. Fined not filtered.
