2019 Winemaker Signature IV

I’m proud to bring our fourth rendition of the coveted Winemaker Signature bottle and this time it’s waxed in Cobalt Fire Blue, an amazing look for a once in a lifetime wine. We etched, labeled and bottled the most challenging wine bottle in the world! This special bottle is made in Italy and called, “Due Fondos.” The bottle was the winner of Bruni Glass’s annual bottle competition! I call it “The Winemaker Signature” and I plan on hand bottling a limited number of bottles each year.

Production notes

This 2019 vintage marks our biggest bottling yet at a total of 200 750ml bottles. We are limiting purchases to 2 bottles per customer. This bottle was the most challenging bottle I have ever worked with due to its unique shape and design. The etching shows off John Jagger’s Original sculpture entitled “Eternal Flame.” Don Landy, a local wine bottle etcher spent 45 minutes per bottle to mask, sand blast and paint each bottle. Then we filled each bottle with the blend, corked, waxed, and sticker labeled the bottom of each bottle. My last touch was to sign and number each one. Theses bottles are only available at the tasting room.

Once again, I have decided to make Cabernet Franc the focal point in this wine. This 2019 Cabernet Franc has the most amazingly dense and full mouthfeel imaginable. It demands attention and is the crowning centerpiece in this remarkable blend. Above all this Cab Franc is layered with dried red fruits, a hint of mint and finishes on a dark chocolate note. At a cool 30% of the blend; this Syrah is right in the middle, offering balanced flavors of black cherry, plum and pomegranate. Also, this Syrah, aged in 100% new Hungarian wood shows great black-pepper with dusty dry tannins. Petite Sirah aged in 100% New American Oak is a BIG tasting wine! Nothing rounds out a wine better than a powerfully dense, thick, and meaty Petite Sirah. At 20% of the total blend, this Petite Sirah comes through on the palate, offering bouquets of roasted nuts, tobacco smoke and maple and brown sugar bacon.


Rest assured this wine is the most ageable wine that Sculpterra offers! It can age a minimum of 15 years before reaching its tasting pinnacle. I love the challenge in this bottle, each process from harvest to filling the bottles, has taken real creative thought, and this unique wine is crafted like no other. This wine will sell out, pick one up upon release before it’s no more.
