Wine Review: This medium garnet colored Pinot Noir opens with a black plum and black cherry bouquet with hints of dark chocolate, and black currant. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is well-balanced, polished, silky, and elegant. The flavor profile is a black plum and stony mineral blend with notes of Bing cherry and mocha. We also detected some hints of oak and herbal tea in the mix. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with veal medallions with a mushroom and brown sauce. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: An absolutely arresting wine, our 2019 Anderson Valley Angel Hawk epitomizes the vibrant fruit and racy acidity that marked this vintage at its best. A bright core of red fruit is complemented by notes of dried florals, sweet tea and Asian spice. On the palate, high-toned fruit and spice notes gain mouthfilling richness, creating a lovely tension that persists through the long, focused finish. Decant first 18 months following release, or lay down for 10-15+ years.
