Angeline Reserve Pinot Noir
Angeline Reserve Pinot Noir is produced from grapes carefully selected from vineyards in these three counties: Sonoma, Mendocino and Santa Barbara Counties. The Sonoma and Mendocino Counties are known for their cool winters and warm summers, with a coastal influence that often brings fog to the area. The fog creates a moist blanket during cold weather and cool relief when the temperature rises which allows the grapes to retain their bright and delicate flavors. The cool coastal area of Santa Barbara County has temperate weather throughout the year with inland fog and ocean breezes.
Winemaker’s Notes: Our Angeline Pinot Noir is produced from fruit that abounds with intense fruit and rich aromas. By “cold soaking” the crushed grapes and fermenting at moderate temperatures, bright fruit flavors are extracted from the grape, without harsh tannins. This Pinot Noir is aged in French oak barrels for ten months and has a red, dark brick color with intense aromas of black cherry highlighted by smoke and sweet, earthy spice. Fresh, ripe flavors of red fruit and dried red cherries with soft tannins and a light, easy finish.
Food & Wine Pairing: Try our Angeline Pinot Noir with Portobello mushroom burgers, a lightly seared salmon filet or pasta with a tomato based sauce.
