With a dynamic perspective on the industry, the likewise endless possibilities for innovating operations at his own winery are what called Courtney to found Angeline in 1990, and what continues to call him to raise the bar on everyday wines.

Early on, Courtney recognized that great wine is the sum of more than just good grapes and talented winemakers; it"„¢s the result of an efficient, nimble whole. As with so many start-up ideas, there is a constant conceptual interplay between our lean core team and a selection of expert consultants and growers. Unyielding devotion to this fusion of great fruit and great minds is precisely what Angeline has stood for nearly three decades.

 VINEYARDS

The most profound contributing factor to the outstanding quality of California Pinot Noir, and the integrity to its varietal, is the diversity of its sourcing. Because it is not relegated to a single county or growing region, Angeline are given the opportunity to source from the best Pinot Noir regions throughout the state. From the warmer regions of the Central Coast, to the foggy cool valleys of the Northern Coast, each individual lot promotes the intense berry flavours and rich colours that keep this cornerstone Pinot true to its varietal.

VINTAGE NOTES

From start to finish, 2018 was a very steady season, offering weather that was reminiscent of years prior to drought. Budbreak came later in the spring with very little concern about frost, leading into steady growing temperatures with occasional rain. There were intermittent heat spikes in June and July, though not prolonged, pushing the season along. August was temperate, allowing slow ripening and complex flavours to develop. Higher than average yields and excellent quality brought about a fruitful harvest beginning in late August.

WINEMAKING

Pinot Noir grapes are delivered from throughout the coastal regions of the state in hand-picked, ½ ton bins. Each lot is destemmed, but not crushed in order to prevent the release of astringent tannins from the skins and seeds. The lots are fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool to moderate temperatures to maximize the bright fruit aromatics and flavors. Following primary, it is pressed and racked to 35% new French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging.

TASTING NOTES

This Pinot Noir is a wealth of aromas such as fresh cranberries, maraschino cherries, and orange zest. The palate is round and juicy with lively acidity, and a touch of sweet, toasty oak on the finish.
