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

Rich bouquet of dark berries, tobacco, cedar and currant on the nose. Firm Tannins on the palate, with a silky coating on the tongue, taste of dark plum skin, and rich berries. This is a strong wine with a medium body. Would love to try it with a steak.

Opens with time to reveal layers and layers of fruit. With time and air it develops ripe plum and oak spice layered with nutmeg, clove, and allspice. Initial notes of blueberry and allspice transform into tobacco, chocolate and mulberry. Will benefit from time in the bottle to reveal its full complexity, but is currently showing intense stone fruit flavors and a rich full mid palate with an intense grip of tannin.

Supple and generous, with rich, full-bodied plum, blackberry, currant and black licorice notes that are rough-hewn but well-structured, ending with a pleasing, chunky fruitiness. Drink now through 2019. 300 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Terlato Rutherford, Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
