2011 Angeline California Pinot Noir
13.5% alc., $9.99, screwcap. · Medium reddish-purple hue in the glass. The aromas of spiced plum, black raspberry jam and graham really jump out of the glass. Tasty core of dark cherries and plum sauce with accents of herbs, oak, dark chocolate, spice and cherry hard candy. Moderately concentrated with balanced tannins and some fruit showing up for an encore on the finish. Good. Reviewed January 19, 2013 ARTICLE »

13.9% alc., $12.50. · Funky nose of fresh-sawn oak, redwood, herbs and pineapple (due to some VA). Moderate amount of black cherry fruit smoothly presented with a sidecar of oak toast and herbs. Reviewed November 17, 2008 ARTICLE »
