Wine Review: This pale ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a gentle cherry and cola bouquet with a hint of crushed stone, raspberry and clove. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, nicely balanced and super smooth. The flavor profile is flavor profile is tasty black cherry and vanilla blend with notes of stony minerality. We also detected hints of cola, cinnamon and oak. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and drift away nicely. The Panel would pair this Pinot with beef carpaccio, duck confit or just drink it on its own. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our 2018 Anderson Valley Angel Hawk Pinot Noir is an exquisitely finessed, deeply complex and elegantly structured wine. It opens with an enticing bouquet of dried rose petals, red berry, sweet floral tea, and wet stone complemented by notes of allspice, clove and vanilla. On the palate, a bright core of high-toned red fruit, buoyed by racy acidity unfurls with suppleness from polished tannins, while hints of alpine strawberry and sweet oak persist on the seemingly never-ending finish. Enjoy upon release or hold for up to 12 years.
