Angel Vine 2011 Zinfandel, Columbia Valley, $19

By on January 15, 2014

angel-vine-zinfandel-2011-labelEd Fus makes his wine close to his home in Carlton, Ore., but many of his grapes come from Washington vineyards — in this case Alder Ridge in the Horse Heaven Hills, Avery near Maryhill and and StoneTree on the Wahluke Slope. The aromatics are stuffed with loads of raspberry, pie cherry, home-canned President plums, strawberry candy and sarsaparilla. Next comes a beautiful entry of raspberry and strawberry juice with good acidity. Mild tannins, good length and dialed-in alcohol make this a bright and delicious Zin from the Pacific Northwest.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 325 cases

Alcohol: 15.1%

      Since this is made by an Oregon winery, your best bet is to contact Angel Vine directly. Looks like they sell it through their website.
