Dark Star Cellars Ricordati 1998
Accessories Collection from Piedmont, Italy
At the winery we feel a strong connection with our history as a family. "Ricordati" (Re-core-dot-tee), "Always Remember", is a delicate blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc which is produced to celebrate the memory of our friends and family. Ricordati began as a tribute by our winemaker, Norm Benson, to his father. It has now evolved in to a wine that celebrates the memory of all of our friends and family who have passed away. A tribute to the positive impact they all have had on our lives. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon 31% Merlot 4% Cabernet Franc 909 cases produced
Dark Star Cellars Winery
Established in 1994, Dark Star's annual production of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Syrah and our meritage blend Ricordati hovers around 4,000 cases. Our focus is on producing small lots of ultra-premium hand crafted red wines. We feel our success comes from a gentle treatment of our wines from harvest to bottling, and from the strong respect we have for our growers. At Dark Star we truly believe great wines begin in the vineyard. To that end, our grapes are hand harvested and slowly fermented. After fermentation our dedication to "synthetic gravity", the use of low pressure pneumatic pumps and nitrogen racking, allows each wine to be gently moved from one stage of it's life to another, ultimately allowing each wine to reach it's fullest potential.

It's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California." A country into itself in the wine world, California makes enough varieties and styles to match many European wine countries. It produces a diverse range of wines that span the quality spectrum.
