After 50 years in the wine industry, wine is still an inspiration for me. Every vintage brings an anticipation and excitement. After all, it’s a new birth.

After 50 years in the wine industry, wine is still an inspiration for me. Every vintage brings an anticipation and excitement. After all, it’s a new birth. When I discovered Pinot Grigio in Italy, I was taken by its fresh aromas, its crispness, freshness and the way it paired effortlessly with foods. It was virtually unknown when I brought it to the United States in 1979. Not surprisingly, an entire nation of wine drinkers embraced Pinot Grigio for the same reasons I did. Today Pinot Grigio is the most requested wine in fine restaurants, and Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio is the quality leader for the varietal. The U.S. was introduced to a new wine, as well as a new level of quality from Italy. I still feel about it today the same way I did the first time I tasted it. When I tasted Syrah from the Rhone Valley, dense, rich and aromatic, it immediately captured my fascination as well. It was a wine that I knew could stand alongside the best of another classic, Cabernet Sauvignon, because the taste profiles were similar: dense, rich and aromatic. We have fashioned our Syrah along those same lines. Of course, like most wine lovers, I have had a lifelong love affair with Bordeaux, the aristocracy of red wines, a blend of classic varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Angels’ Peak is the first of three blends we will introduce. When my sons and I decided to become vintners, our winemaking team found the right soil, and climate conditions that suited our needs. We planted some vineyards, bought others and Terlato Vineyards was born. It is small venture, but a sincere tribute to the wines and winemakers who have inspired us for decades. I regard these winemakers as artists and dreamers. I know this is true because now I am a winemaker myself. I want Terlato Vineyards to stand among the finest wines in the world, with those crafted by my friends. Read less

60% Merlot , 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot. Expresses the Napa Valley, and at the same time, respects the classic traditions of Bordeaux's Grand Cr� wines. Dazzling aromas and an impeccable equilibrium, with perfumes of black fruit, tobacco and mocha. Rich and full-bodied, Angels' Peak is enjoyable while young as it shows off its great promise and will reward those with the patience to cellar it for a few years. Only 600 cases produced. DDD

Wine Tasting NotesBlended from combinations of the five classic varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, Bordeaux epitomizes elegance, complexity and sophistication. The Cabernet/Merlot-based blend was aged two years in French Oak. It possesses perfumes of black fruit, tobacco and mocha. Rich and full-bodied, Angels Peak is enjoyable while young as it shows off its great promise and will reward those with the patience to cellar it for a few years.
