Angels & Cowboys 'Proprietary Red' 2019 (Sonoma County, USA)

$68.00 $73.00

Angels & Cowboys excels at blending Sonoma fruit sourced from the County’s best growers. Their 2017 is incredible value, not a wine to miss. Sonoma County is blanketed by a tapestry of exceptional vineyards. The winemaking team tracks down singular lots of fruit that hail the subtleties of Sonoma sub-regions, from Carneros to the distinction of Sonoma Valley, the refinement of the Russian River Valley to the abundance of flavour found in the Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys.

Working with Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Syrah, Carignane and other robust grape varieties we strive to coax richness and depth from the grapes while still retaining an elegant balance of acidity to keep the wine vibrant and fruit driven. Yeast strains are selected to enhance the natural flavors and texture of the varietals and fermentations are monitored to enhance texture and mouthfeel. Cold soaks, early pressing, and extended macerations are employed as best suited to each of the parcels. Blending is a multi-stage process in late winter/early spring, following the vintage with components aging separately for 6-10 months prior to blending.

A fun blend with lots of character, delivering ripe fruit, but at the same time some cedar, bark, tea and vanilla undertones. It’s full-bodied, but relatively balanced and polished. Zinfandel, petite sirah, syrah, grenache, carignan and merlot.” - 91 Points, James Suckling
