The Metal Bender line of wines is named in honor of the Stringer Family’s manufacturing business in Wisconsin. The business stamps, machines and fabricates metal into components used in industries throughout America. They are “Metal Benders”. The wine blended in Metal Bender comes from premier AVAs and top vineyards throughout California.
The 2017 Metal Blend started as a barrel selection of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. A dollop of Syrah was added for complexity. The wine displays notes of bright red cherry, vanilla, and cedar with the structure and acid backbone to hold up to hearty dishes.
