2019 Angel Crest Pinot Noir
This deep and sensuous Pinot Noir comes from an expansive vineyard that we planted just six years ago, situated on a slope of decomposed basalt. These young vines produce small berries with thick skins that give deep color to the resulting wine.
The wine has a decadent aroma of mocha, vanilla spice, and hickory. The pallate is textural with notes of rose petals, graphite, and ripe red cherries. There is a hint of clove on the long finish.
Only 175 cases of this wine were crafted in 2019. It's a collectable Pinot Noir that drinks well now and will mature for a decade or more.
