Angeline Winery Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

ANGELINE 2007 pinot noir is produced from grapes carefully selected from vineyards in Sonoma & Mendocino Counties. Both counties are known for its 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 2007 harvest was a week or so earlier this year, but fairly quick, compact and with lower crop yields. Early winter rainfall led to an even growing season with moderate weather conditions throughout the year. Although crop size was down, we harvested beautiful fruit which will produce wines with great intensity. 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 12 months and has a brilliant ruby color with aromas of strawberry, raspberry and overtones of smoked tea and spice. Bright flavors of strawberry, layered with a subtle touch of vanilla oak, lead to a rich, round fruit finish.View our video review of this wine!

Grapes and alcohol on the nose. Weak body and no other redeeming quality - grapes and alcohol carried through.

The 2006 vintage was much better, I don't recommend it.

My boyfriend and I are just branching out into red wines. This wine was recommended to us at a local Brazilian steakhouse. We fell in love. Easy to drink, great with the heavy meats we were eating. Buying a stock for home on steak nights.
